4n Ode to 1941 

The following words were composed by Registrar Marshall O. Lan- 
phear and presented to the senior class at the senior banquet Monday night: 

Tune "Tramp, Tramp, Tramp, the Boys are Marching" 
One September in the fall 
Came you freshmen with your fall 
And with nothing else as far as we could see. 
There were Forrest, Field, and Fish, 
Names for almost every wish, 
Burr, a Bolt, a Bagge of Favorite Coffey. 

Long, Brown, Coates you came a marching! 
Schenker, Shanker, Slack and Sammy Shaw. 

Some had names we couldn't say, 

Such as Rojko, Rodriguez, 
As a class you were extremely in the raw. 

Says the Dean as you pass 

"Why, they're greener than the grass!" 
Prexy also studied carefully your lines. 

When he saw your Kathleen Kell, 

And that Cooney girl as well, 
Shouted "There are going to be momentous times." 

Tramps, Tramps, Tramps you came a marching! 
Look out, Boys, the dean is mad 

"White, you'll have to flunk a few 

You must get each one's I. Q. 
If it's low, we'll just return him to his dad. 

Then came April in the spring 

When Doc Torrey got his fling 
And you learned that of dimensions there are four. 

But some only thought in two, 

So Doc made short work of you, 
Thus your number was reduced by several more. 

Some were grinds that Came a marching 
Cheer! Boys! Cheer! for these, Doc's best 

Learned that Ontogeny 

Recapits Phylogeny 
And the Doc don't give a damn about the rest. 

Thus the years they rolled away. 

Son you learned the way to stay 
Wasn't using all the time you had to bone 

But by taking guts you'd pass 

And by cutting each quiz class 
You could get around King Machmer on this throne. 

Cheer, Dean, Cheer, 'twill soon be over 
We will graduate a few 

Then the campus will be free 

For our learned Faculty 
But for those we drop to 1942.

strations of human activity it offers 
not only to majors in biology, but 
for those whose major field is nutri-

Dr. Gage continually emphasizes 
the need of objective presentation of 
the complex relationships which exist 
in the human body. 

Students who take courses in phys- 
iology know they are not taking 
"guts," hut nevertheless they admire 
the energetic, lightning-fast "G. E."

lations. This new trend has taken the 
form of group participation in vari- 
ous activities of a social nature. 

Sigma Alpha Epsilon seems to have 
started the ball rolling in the new di- 
rection when that frat held a series 
of bridge parties with Phi Zeta and 
Lambda Delt. These proved so suc- 
cessful that softball games between 
the various fraternities, sororities, 
and sororities, and dormitories fol- 
lowed. Lambda Chi broke through 
with a softball game against the fair 
residents of Butterfield. 

S. A. E. then came up with another 
very good idea along this line; and 
a combination softball game and buf- 
fet supper resulted. This proved as 
successful as the bridge parties. 

Perhaps I'm prejudiced, but I think 
this new trend is a dawgone good 
thing; and would like to see the stu- 
dents take to the idea. It's something 
new; but it seems to me it's something 
worth while.

MORALE Morale is a thing which worries a great many peo- 
ple and a great many nations these days. The late 
Mr. Webster of Amherst defines morale as, "Con- 
dition as affected by, or dependent upon, such moral or mental 
factors as zeal, spirit, hope etc." 

As a unit of varied activities Massachusetts State College 
has the problem of bolstering morale. Particularly in athletics 
must the student body help to strengthen the morale of the teams. 

Tomorrow night the student body can give tangible evidence 
of its support of the teams by turning out EN MASSE to the 
Adelphia Rally. There will be an opportunity for the students, both 
new and old, to meet and greet the prominent athletes and the 
directors of other college activities. 

Attendance at the mass meeting tomorrow night will be do- 
ing your part for better morale, or as it's usually called around 
here, college spirit. 

* * * 

OREETINOS The Collegian takes this opportunity to add the 
'45 greetings of the entire student body to the many 

welcomes the Class of 1946 has already received. 
The frosh will be the subject of curiosity from their elders for 
some time. The neophytes will be subjected to many embarrassing 
situations; they will suffer the torments of being rushed by fra- 
ternities and sororities, and many more disturbing activities. 

The three upper classes, however, are sincere in their greeting 
to '45. There will be a strenuous effort to make the often heard 
statement, "This campus is a friendly place." true in every sense.

The passing Of Uncle George Parley last week was a tremen- 
dous loss to Massachusetts Stale College. He had served long and 
well as a State 4-1 1 Club leader. 

Many here did not know hin. personally. Everyone knew him 
by his reputation for serving the youth of the commonwealth. 
Despite a handicap in recent years he had the courage to keep on. 

Massachusetts will miss Uncle George.

The big drawback thus far is a lack 

ol reserve strength. Several letter-

been used together during scrim mages, 
so that State's probable starting line-

The Collegiate Review 

(By Associated Collegiate Press) 

As late as 1919 in a midwest col- 
lege now out of existence, women 
students were not allowed to flay 
croquet "because it made them take 
immodest postures." 

Three gibbons, anthropoid apes 
more closely related to man than any 
of the monkeys, have been Acquired 
by the psychology laboratory at

imental purposes.

A sneak-thief made away with more

Twenty-six University of Texas 
students, all feet 9 or taller, have 
formed a club whose only qualifica- 

Pledge chapel is not far off and the buzz of frater- 
nity discussion is even now about campus. This 
editorial is intended for freshmen. For fraternity 
men it will do no harm to read. 

It is well for the freshmen to consider carefully what they 
enter when they pledge a fraternity. The president of the college 
has emphasized the importance of knowing where you're going. 

Fraternity rushing here lives up to its name. It is a quick, 
strenuous effort to secure members for the fraternity. Perhaps 
it is well to have the pain over quickly. But remember: 

The fraternity you pledge influences your scholastic 
career and, despite indications to the contrary during the 
past week and a half,' freshmen must remember that 
their primary purpose is to study. 

That the fraternity influences your social career. 
The present members and the other pledges of this year 
will be your closest college friends. Are they the people 
with whom you wish to be identified? 

That the fraternity will expect financial support 
from you. Are you, and will you be equipped to meet its 
demands ? 
On the other hand do not forget: 

That the fraternity you pledge can offer you true 
and lasting friends, good food, and a pleasant place to live. 
Help around the college. 
Possibly help after graduation. 
Give the fraternity situation prolonged thought before pledge 
chapel. Do not be impetuous. And "Let the buyer beware."

MY, HOW WE'VE A tangible evidence of the spectacular and 
GROWN! healthy growth of Massachusetts State Col- 

lege in the past five years is given in a com- 
parison of the old and new style INDEX statistics blanks. The 
old form, used for five years to collect each student's college history 
for the yearbook, contained 73 items which students checked for 
participation. The new blank, which will be used for the 1942 
INDEX, contains 98 items. 

This expansion of extracurricular activities is an indication 
of a college maturing. It is an indication of broadened aspect of 
the whole college. 

And the college can be proud that during this period of growth 
it has maintained the academic standards for which it is noted.

Dad's Day is set for October 11. The committee 
has an entertaining program planned. Because it is 
a holiday week-end, it is a particularly good oppor- 
tunity to invite the dads to visit the college. 

This year no evening entertainment will be offered so that 
those students who wish to spend the holiday week-end at home 
may leave the campue early with their dads. 

The Dad's Day Committee is doing its part to entertain the 
visitors. It's up to you to bring them here.

(By Associated Collegiate Press) 

"No attention at all has been paid 
to requests that instructors be defer-

almost impossible to recruit teachers of 
engineering. As a result, while we are 
asked to train more engineers, we 
have fewer teachers to conduct the

college instructors of draft age be de- 
ferred from selective service.

Dear Editor: 

Where, oh where are the missing

while you brazenly maintain that only 

'Mil were registered. What did you do 

with the mitring seven? Are they 
Yahoodi — or didi they fail the mental 
test? Perhaps they infringed upon 
the rules of the rules of ti.-.- mighty 
Senate by canlessly strolling down 
the army of ghosts that haunt this 
moonlit ca-npue? (By the way. I saw 

a white figure with a white hat last 
p. in., and was about to circumnavi- 
gate it when she said "hello!"). It's 
a little bit early to start this ghost 
stuff. Perhaps the seven missing 
Freeh got scared by the evil prediction 
that we will all be pushing up poppies 
by the year 2010 A. D., so they de- 
the Stockbridge walk, or neglected to 
join in the freshman fad of hopscotch. 

Have they already gonne the way

mitted mass suicide. Gosh, how they 
underestimate a frosh! Why, by the 
yeaf 201(1, we'll only just he begin- 
ning to enjoy the fruits of our labors. 

The first hundred years are the 
hardest, you know. 

Or maybe the unfortunate demise 
of the unlucky seven was due to 
tumuchciderosis with complications of 
donutsia. Gluttonous frosh are par-

Miss Foley pointed out that con-

one-third of OUT nation's families an 
fretting diets which rate even lower 
tl an "poor." The alarming fact is 
that not more than one family in four 
secures a diet that can be rated 
w gCOd." Miss Foley stated that the 
honicmakcrs of the nation must be 
taught how to buy the best nutrition 
with their food dollar and how to pre- 
pare and cook this f I to get the most 


Willard A. Munson, director of the 
extension service at the college, spoke 
(»n the subject "What a Man Thinks 
About This Nutrition Program", and 
stated that most people take more 
consideration of their animals' diet 
than they do their own. "We have 
the resources in the United States to 
give every person a good healthy 
diet". Director Munson pointed out. 
"Malnutrition, like an undercover 
agent, undermines the will to do and 

weakens resistance. The building up 
of our human resources is one of the 
most important parts of our national 
defense program, for without vigorous 
healthy people all our defense prepar-

Junior Complains About Lack of Soda 
Fountain In Memorial Hall; Studies Music 

Dear Mother, 

Here I am again. I wouldn't write 
so soon, lint you see I liaw decided 

tn take a course in music, BO of coursi 
I had to buy a new combination vie 
an dradio, and I haven't go the 
money to pay for it. A Vic really i' ; 
essential to the course, and since wi 
have to listen to really good music, 
I got some now Dorsey'a and just one 
or two by Glenn Gray, along with 
some other classics. I am sure that 
you will see thai they ate really ne- 
cessities of life. 

I was just thinking what a shame 
it is that they don't sell records In 
the college stole. I was in there to- 
day, and all the same old mob was 
there. Nothing changes much there, 
you still hear all the girls talking the 
Bam elanguaga all the time. One fun 
ny thing did happen though. Some 
girl up here is taking a course in zoo. 
and when she found out that she was 
going to lie Using slides, she went 
right down to the store and bought 
a slide rule so that she would be 

sure to get hers right. She i- a soph- 
omore, and some where or other 1 
think that I lead that sophomore 
moans a wise fool. Does it? 

You know, mother, tiny are putting 
a new floor in Memorial Hall and it 
really is going to he nice. 1 was just 
thinking what a wonderful idea it 
would he to make it into a real place 
for the college to get together in- 
formally. We really don't have an., 
such place and the college has grown 
so that we need one. Wouldn't it be 
nice if they put in a nickelodeon and 
perhaps a soda fountain at on eend 
and then used it as an Informal room 

lilce they do down at Tufts? It would 
make a swell place to have tea dances 
or just to dance whenever you felt 
like it. Also, it would make it nice 
for commuters if there was a soiia 
fountain. You know that the college 
store is so crowded at noon that you 
can hardly get in there any more, alio 
if the enrollment is to expand, why 
not let the facilities expand with it? 
Then, too, it would he a rare treat to 
he able to sit in a soft chair once in 
•i while. You remember that last year 
the one and only soft chair was taken 
*ut of the library, and a cushion is 
practically unheard of in a men's 
dorm. I know that this is just an idea 
and that the college authorities would 
say that we can't afford the expense 
and that it really isn't quite cricket 
to use Memorial Hall for such things, 
but they use it for everything else, 
ainl I think that this is something thai 
the college is going to find more and 
more need for as time goes on. Not 
that there isn't a pressing need for 
it now, anyhow. Do you know that 
those poor kids that live in the nun's 

dormitories aren't even allowed to 

have radios or vies in their rooms? 
The whole dorm is expected to listen 
to one radio down in the recreation 
room and still we hear all this talk 
about keeping up with the world news. 

Ain't there no justice?

R. H. Verbeck Predicts 
Drop in S. S. A. Figure 

Opportunities in Industry 
Helieved Responsible 
For Decline 

An enrollment drop of between 10 
and 15 percent is expected when the 
Stockbridge School of Agriculture 
opens its doors here next week, it was 
announced today by Roland II. Yer- 
beck, director of short courses. 

Director Verbeck reported that in- 
creased opportunities for employment 
in agriculture and industry are the 
immediate cause of the decrease in 
the two-year vocational agriculture 

He added, however, that in a num- 
ber of cases applicants are indicating 
that they are merely deferring en- 
trance while they earn enough money 
to carry them through the course. 

A number of second-year men, also, 
he said, are deferring completion of 

their course for the same reason. 
Many of these now completing theii 
summer placement training on farms 
and in other agricultural enterprises 
will remain at their present work for 
another year due to increased demands 
for their services resulting from farm 
labor shortages. 

Director Verbeck said that the re- 
cords of these men would be kept on 
the active tile so that they may return 
later to complete the second year of 
their training.

That this characteristic in his nature 
can be traced back to his youth is 
evident from the fact, that he remained 
at this college for only a part of his 
second year. 

Foregoing the details of his dismis- 
sal, one may well note the fact that 
this youth with definite ideas of his 
awn was also equipped with the am- 
bition, tenacity, and sense of legality 
which have (allied his to positions of 
governmental responsibility tn which 
he has the faith and trust of a critical 
American public. 

"As the twig is bent, how grows the 
branch?" might well be asked in this 
case. Unpredictable was the result of 
the abrupt exit from the doors of this 
college of II. F. Stone. This campus, 
in reviewing his achievements, may be 
likened to the conscientious child who. 
close-mouthed about a questionable 
deed, comes back with held breath to 
claim unpredicted honor. The tradi- 
tional ghosts of this college may now 
ihout with fervor: 

"We knew him when !" 

Excerpt from the class history of 
'!'2, flying the colors of Magenta and

"After being disappointed in our 
hopes for a rope-pull last year, we 
had anticipated our contest with '93 

all the more eagerly The Freshmen 

for some time were indispose., to five 
us a trial, hut finally concluded to 
enter into a contest in which we were 
thhe easy victors, being the first 
sophomore class to carry off the rope 
pull honors for several years."

Strong Teams Fielded By Hargesheimer and Briggs 

1 1 Letter men On Hand 
to Open With Engineers 

Rated as good as any in New Eng- 
land is the soccer team which will 
take the field against the Rensselaer 
Engineers in the opening game of the 
season. Eleven lettermen, several oi 
whom starred last year, make up th 
nucleus of a well rounded thirty-one 
man squad. Little is known about the 
visiting Troy team, hut an above aver- 
age team is expected to make a good 
scrap out of the affair. 

The State lineup is not definitely 
Jet yet, but will be built around at 
least a half dozen of la t year's veter 
ans. Sparking the team from a half- 
hack position will be Captain Erick- 
son, who is .showing up well, b:>th a 
a player and a l.ader. Speedy Stan 
Gizienski will have one of the other 
half hack assignments. In the forward 
line three sure starters will be Mull- 
any, Arnold and Callahan. All three 
are repeaters from last year with 
plenty of experience. In the buckfiold. 
only definite opener is tall Ed Podolak 
at a fullback slot. The goalie position 
is probably the most undecided one 
on the team, while both a fullback 
and a halfhack starter are yet to be 
picked. Numerous sophomores are 
showing up well, Hehert and Giannotti 
being those with the most probable 
chances of starting. Veterans who 
are included in the 1941 squad are: 
Carl Erickson, Stanley Gizienski, 
Russell Hihbard, Ed Podolak, Howard 
Banns, James Callahan, Clinton Allen,

Sea Weed On the Beach For State Fans With 
Powerful Backfield Behind Capable Line 

By Ted Noke 

An old sea captain once told me 
In when the sea weed comes in on 
"■•• beaches, prosperity will reign. 
Well, it's hecoming more and more 
that the sea weed is really 
"iniiriir in. Coach Hargesheimer has 
an entire experienced team to work 
not ami a fine bunch of sophomore 
tsndidatei competing heatedly for 
■»1 itring positions.

John Seery 

Trinity, will have their hands full 
going through the guards with John 
McDonough, Ed Warner, Roily Col- 
eila and Johnny Storozuk on the flanks 
of Brady. Local newspapers carried 
disturbing news of our weak tackles. 
Carl Werme, letterman for the past 
two seasons and 211 pound Boh Engle- 
hard both look like very promising 
starters. And when Hank Oilman 
rounds into shape and George Pushcc 
shakes a pesky charlie horse, these 
weak tackle posts will be pretty well 

End material seems to be copious, 
but unseasoned. George Kimhall, vet- 
eran end. is hindered hy a bad ankle, 
while Paul Dwyer, shifted from tackle 
and sophomores Hitchcock, Dunham 
and Anderson all lack playing time. 
Defensively these hoys are all right, 
hut probably won't shine offensively 
till along toward the Amherst fray. 

Offensively, the Statesmen ought 
really to go with a completely experi- 
enced backfield. Husky Jim Bullock 
will call the signals and probahly buck 
the line plenty. Stan Salwak, looking 
very good in pre-game bouts will 
prove a dangerous open field runner 
p|)d will also roam the outfield as 
safety man. At the other halfback 
will he triple threatcr Gil Santin He 
will do much of the kicking and pass- 
ing besides considerable Ine skirting. 
At fullback, Benny Freitas, speedy 211 

pound line hucker will prohably reign 
as usual. Seery, Masi, Fideli and 
Xel.esky make up a better than aver- 
age second quartet which with the 
afore-outlined team should give us at 
least a touchdown's advantage over 
the Gymnasts. 

Attention Sophomores 

The call has heen issued from the 
physical education building for candi- 
dates as assistant managers in the 
various fall sports. Positions are Open 
in foothall, cross country and soccer to

Attention Sophomores 

Any sophomore interested in 
beeemkeg football manager in 
his senior year should contact 
Saul Glick at T. E. P. or on 
the foothall field during prac- 
tice hour*. Competition for 
the post is already under way 
and will last until the end of 
the football season. 

The Massachusetts State foothall 
team makes its initial how ,,f the sea 

■or. this Saturday afternoon when il 
meets Springfield College at Pratt 


Walter Hargesheimer will he direct- 
ing the destinies of the Statesmen for 

the first tn.... since his appointment as 
coach last sprine;. Coach Hsrgeshei 
mer is well pleased with the progress 

ul " dl ,lu ' team has ihown during the 

last tWe Weeks. He said. "The physi 
eal condition and morale of the s,|ua«l 
IS good and there are few sen. .us in- 
juries to hamper us. \\'e should be at 
full strength Saturday." 

Just how the teams compare is as 
yet pretty much of a mystery. State 
has a profusion of sophomore reserves 

this fall most of whom show consider- 
able ability. Outstanding are big Rob 
Engelhard and stocky J l)t . Masi. 
Engelhard, win. started his foothall 

Career In "aloha land", is slated to use 
his L'll pound frame to good advan 
tags at right tackle while Joe Masi is 
tlie tentative starter at .piarter hack. 
Hut like all sophomores, the reserves 
lack that necessary "game seasoning" 
Which is so essential to any smoothly 
functioning team. However, there 
are enough veterans from last seasons 
•quad to form a sizeahle and solid 

nucleus. These veterans Include George 

Kimhall and Paul Dwyer at ends, Carl 
Werme at left tackle, Hi k r .John Mc- 
Donough and Russ Clarke at guards.

Publication of the first volume of 
a technical journal devoted to experi- 
mental research in speech was an- 
nounced here this week. 

The journal, which will be issued 
annually, is edited by Clyde W. Dow, 

in charge Of oral English at Massa- 
chusetts State, and is published in 
cooperation with the department of 
languages and literature. 

Purpose of the journal, according to 

Mr. Dow, is to provide Tor the first 
time a record of experimental research

citizens to examine their own cities to

European workingmen'a homes. 

"The industrial expansion of the 
late 1800'B created unfavorable condi-

industrial cities," he pointed out. "In- 
dustrial areas serve as the very focus 
of target! which include countless

"Eventually the journal will include 
abstracts of research done by ma- 
ture experimenters and published in 
professional journals," Mr. Dow ex- 
plained. For the present It begins 
where the need is greatest, with the 
lesults of experiments performed by 
graduate students and hitherto hid- 
den away in theses." 

The Speech Abstracts will not re- 
port historical and related studies in 
speech but plans to make available 
to those engaged in teaching, correc- 
tion, and research in speech, the con- 
siderable body of data which it has 
hitherto been most difficult to tap. 
Thus the Abstracts will be limited lo 
the results of experimenal and ob- 
jecive research. 

The first volume includes abstracts 
and conclusions from 30 experimental 
research studies made at eleven in- 

The typical abstract contains a 
brief report of the research including 
title, author, source, statement of the 
problem, description of subjects used, 
materials used, procedure, and con- 

The publication, issuud this year in 
mimeographed form, has been com- 
mended by many leaders in the field 
of speech research. Next year associ- 
ate editors will be appointed in co- 
operating institutions to aid hi as- 
sembling the material.

In the early part of any operating season every 
newspaper has certain problems which it wishes to 
present to its readers. Right now the problem con- 
fronting the COLLEGIAN staff is how to increase news coverage 
on campus. 

In assigning news stories the editors try to cover all scheduled 
events and also prophesy the unscheduled and unannounced events, 
and to reach potential news sources. The editors still feel that 
much occurs here that would interest COLLEGIAN readers which 
never reaches the pages of the paper. 

Our reporters are not ubiquitous. They have classes to attend 
and lessons to prepare. The time which the editors can ask of the 
staff is limited. To be sure, every member of the staff works solely 
for the pleasure and experience he receives from his work. Of 
money there is none, campus fame is transitory. 

But we do ask the cooperation of the students and faculty in 
helping us to receive the clues which will lead to a better COLLE- 

Student organizations are in general eager to receive publici- 
ty. The faculty is reluctant in most cases. Many of the faculty be- 
lieve it does not become a member of the staff to tell the press 
about his work, or where he is going. However, when one elimin- 
ates the personal point of view and considers the news as a help to 
the college the reluctance should disappear. Important doings 
here help the college. They build morale in the student body.among 
the parents who read the paper, and more than anywhere else, news 
of outstanding activities here helps the renown of this institution 
in the many places throughout the world where The COLLEGIAN 
is sent weekly. 

The COLLEGIAN staff earnestly asks the cooperation of both 
students and staff in letting us know about news. Call the COL- 
LEGIAN office, mail us a letter, see a reporter, or come yourself. 
Remember it is really lor a better State College.

Monday of this week another entering class arrived 
on campus. This time not the Class of 1945, but the 
Class of 1943 of the Stockbridge School of Agricul- 
ture. The students of State welcome Stockbridge, 
both freshmen and seniors. 

The trend of the times has made the more practical aspects of 
living more significant to all of us. This year more than ever before 
the value of fast, efficient vocational training is apparent, Stock- 
bridge offers this. Still, it is not devoid of the spirit and unity 
which characterizes the larger organization here. 

There have been times in the past when certain State students 
sought unwarranted^ to belittle and decry Stockbridge, Those 
times have passed probably, but the final judgment can come only 
on actions. And Stockbridgt has never deserved disparagement. 

Slate hopes thai you of Stockbridge will integrate yourselves 
with the activities, the spirit, and the work here. We extend to 
you a sincere welcome.

Ruth Helyar Announces 
Rushing Changes 

Bound Robin Tea Will 
Be Held Oct. 19— Rates 
To Be Published 

Ruth Helyar, president of the inter 

sorority council, has announced that 
the round robin tea will be held Oc- 
tober 19, because the siiiiiiity rushing 
schedule has been postponed a week 
due to the Columbus Day week end 
which features Dad's Day. 

The rushing plan this year is new, 
Miss Helyar stated. The rushing pe- 
riod has been extended from a om 
wick period into the announced four 
week period. This will relieve much of 
the confusion and strain usually at- 
tendant upon rushing period. 

Miss Helyar also stated that, except 
hy special permission freshmen resi- 
dences are closed to upperelass worn 
en after 0:00 p. m. 

Complete rules and dates Tor soror- 
ity rushing will he published later.

Stockbridge School 
Opens This Week 

Reporter Interviews Director 
Verbeck As S. S. A. 
Begins Year's Work 


Monday was a big day for Stock- 
bridge School of Agriculture. I esme 
upon Director Roland H. Verbeck as 
he was signing registration cards for 
the many eager young men whose 
thoughts were revolving from blue 
caps with white buttons to livestock 
and crops. 

"Well. Jim," he was remarking, as 
I approached. "Didn't you have a 
brother up here a few years ago?" 

As the lad departed, he remarked, 
"Interesting fact there. That boy is 
one of three in the entering class from 
Connecticut, each of whom has a 
brother who has graduated from our 
school. We have several registrants 
from that state, although Conn. Uni- 
versity is opening a two-year course 
tli is year. We also have four fresh- 
men from Vermont, as well as a girl 
and boy from Maine." 

The director seemed to take a great 
deal of interest in each new arrival, 
asking if he knew certain people who 
had come or were coming from the 
same town or city. Such inquiries as. 
"Did both you chaps come from the 
same school? — How many cows is 
your dad holding this year? — or — 
Do you think you'll get thru this dry- 
spell without tapping your reserve 
water supply?" — all these started a 
chat on the boy's interests and put 
him at ease. 

"We've had to limit the enrollment 
in animal husbandry and dairying. The 
next most in demand," he added, "are 
dairy manufactures and ornamental 
horticulture. Here, too. is an unusual 
variation. In our floriculture course, 
the girls outnumber the hoys. Ten 
out of a total enrollment of seventeen 
girls are in floriculture." 

Speaking of national defense in re- 
lation to summer placement, he said. 
"I don't believe that there is much 
connection there. There is no such 
food shortage as there was during the 
last conflict. Although wc could pro- 
duce more in the way of dairy or 
poultry products, we have more than 
adequate reserves of grain , corn and 
wheat. Incidentally, three of our new 
arrivals are refugees from Lanqucdoc, 
in the south of France. Their dads 
were veterans of the last war."

Ahmed Abd El Wahal Abd Studu 
Horticultural Manufactures Here 

In March 1989 Ahmed Abd El Waha. 

El Abd came from Cairo, Egypt, to 
New York City, sent by his govern 
ment to visit American canneries, 
factories atid packing houses, especi- 
ally those in California. He had in- 
tended to stay in New York and thai- 
vicinity for about two weeks, but the 
March weather was so intolerable to 
the Egyptian that he took the train 
for California after one day in New 

At present Mr. El Abd is studying 
in the Horticultural Manufactures De- 
partment of Massachusetts State Col- 
lege, where he is specializing in food 
products and pomology to understand 
better the American system of food 
preservation. "Within the past ten 
years Egypt has started to export 
surplus fruits and vegetables to 
Europe," he explained, "and we need 
the American system of packing." 

When questioned about bis long 
name, Mr. El Abd explained it easily. 
"El Abd" is the family name and 
'Ahmed" is the given name, a very 
popular one in Egypt corresponding 
to Robert or William here. Because it 
is so popular, and because the El Abd 
family is so large and there are many 
"Ahmed El Abd's", it is necessary to 
include his father's name, "Abd El 
Wahal", to make the title specific! 

Egyptian children are taught to 
•cad and write English in high school, 
he said, but they do not have much 
practice in conversation. With his 
high school knowledge of English, Mr 
El Abd landed in this country two and 
a half years ago and has learned to 
speak and understand this tongue by- 
listening to the radio, the people and 
by taking every opportunity he had to 
talk to himself. "I didn't care if I 
did talk wrongly as long as I had a 





The first display of photographic 
ability of the season is now located in 
the upper hall of Goodell Library. 
The current exhibition consists of a 
collection of 80 prints from the West- 
ern Massachusetts— Vermont region 
uf the New England Council of Cam- 
era Clubs. 

Six prints are contributed by Am- 
1 1* ist photographers, Snyder, Lach- 
man, Powers, Day, Vondell, and Coffin. 
This show is typical of the fine work 
being done in this section. In the re- 
cent nationwide competition, Amherst 
placed first in the east and third in 
the nation. 

The present exhibit will remain un- 
til October 15, when it will be replac- 
ed by the Hartford travel show.

because many younger nurses have

navy, the Red Cross, and industry. 

The Amherst Camera Club will in- 
augurate its seventh season with a 
meeting in the Old Chapel Friday 
evening at 7:o0. This meeting is open 
to regular members ami anyone else 
interested in photography. 

Ralph E. Day and Donald S. La- 
croix will present an illustrated dia- 
logue on "Better Pictures". This dis- 
cussion will include all practical 
aspects of picture taking from cam 
eras to composition. 

The print competitions will feature 
child portraits and summer landscapes 
in the advanced group, and children's 
pictures in the amateur class.

ns of their particular team on

LB manager during his senior year, 
personal benefits are certainly 
ite, — a varsity sweater, a fine 
course of business experience and sev- 
i rsl worthwhile trips included. So 
much depredation on the heads of the 
sophomores. Now to the student body 
in its entirety: First, the Joint Com- 
mittee on Intercollegiates is probably 
the most democratic student body on 
campus. The reason for this is that 
with all seven student managers at a 
meeting, they can easily outvote the 
live members of the faculty, trustees 
ami alumni who are members of the 
committee. Secondly, student mana- 
gen are probably the most important 
contact men connected with the college. 
Below is a partial list of the people 
with whom I saw my superior speak 
t\lun as an assistant I accompanied 
;; varsity team on a trip last year; 
but driver, store clerk, waitress, cash- 
ief of the restaurant, hotel clerk, hotel 
manager, officials of the meet, coaches 
ami managers of other teams and even 
a college president whose team wa» 
occupying the dressing room adjourn- 
ing ours. Everyone of these people 
knew to whom they were talking and 
whether consciously or not, that brief 
talk altered in some way the opinion 
which that person may previously 
IttWe had of State. Now, to st^op to 
moralising, both of these points are 
meant to bring out the fact that sta- 
ll i ■' managers should be of the high- 
lit type possible. They should be 
campus and fraternity leaders who 
will circulate for us, the best possible 
reputation. It is, therefore, the duty 
"f the student body to see that worthy

In Second Game Sat. 
Ct. Has Many Veterans 

Nine Lettermen in Starting 
Lineup As Booters lilank 
Engineers In Opening Tilt 

Matching itself against what is re- 
puted to be the beat Connecticut I'ni- 
versity team to come out of Stem in 
a good many years, the Massachusetts 
State soccer team will endeavor to 
annex its second victory this Saturday 

in the first home game of Hie season. 
According to coach Larry Itriggs. 
UConn has never been particularly 
tOUgh opposition because of an impo- 
tent otrense. "But," he added, "if 
Connecticut has as strong an offense 
as they have defense they will prove 
to be dangerous." Not too much is 
known about the individual players 

themselves except that there is a pre- 
ponderance of veterans, many with 
two, or even three years experience 
behind them. 

As for the State lineup, Ed Podo- 
lak will be a sure starter at fullback 
with a hack line of Potter. Cizienski, 
and Erickson. The front line will re- 
main intact in the persons of Mullany, 
Arnold, Hcbeit, Callahan and Papp, 

hut the goalie sit t is, as yet, nude i.Icd. 

The Hriggsmen opened their lirst 
game with a 2-0 shutout over the 
Rensselaer hooters last Saturday at 
Alumni field. In the fust period, Jim 
Callahan hoisted the leather past tin 
gigantic R. P. J. goalie for the initial 
score. The Tech defenses then stiffen- 
ed and the game see-sawed back and 
forth with both teams threatening 
until half-time. 

Came the third period, and for a 
time it looked as though it would be

The State football team will play its 
first home engagement of the li'il 
season this Saturday afternoon when 
it meets the University of Connecticut

Bier will start practically tlu same 
lineup which last week forced Spring-

The Nutmeggers will move into

Good Material Available 
For Hill and Dale Squad 

W'i'h the opening meet still over 
two weeks away, the varsity hill and 
da) e<*S are still taking the course 

pretty slowly, concentrating mostly 
ei, building up resiatence with over 
distance work. Last year's lineup, 
with tie exception of graduating 
Chester Putney, is out intact and look- 
ing vei> well for early in the season. 
These include Bill Kimball, Dave Ifor- 
ril, Brad Greene and Puss MacDonald. 
( ompetition from the sophomore (lass 
is very strong and the actual starters 
for the first race will not lie known 
until time trials are held during the 
latter part of next week. Work for 
the freshmen harriers started this 
week with eight men out preparing foi 
the drat regular meet on October 
twenty-third. Among those out for 
freshman cross-country are Atfierl, 
Campbell, Donohue, Doolittle, Fiorio, 

Hunter, Kelleher, Madorsky. 


A squad of 41 candidates greeted 
Coach Lorin Hall's lirst call for Stock- 
bridge football practice this week. 
Among t h ose reporting Were three 
lettermen, ('apt. John Downey, tackle; 
Clayton Southard, end; and George 

said to be an expert passer. Mohre, 

Toffolon and DeCarli constitute the 
rest of the quartet expected to stall 

against the statesmen. The Connecti- 
cut line will feature live lettermen 
and will outwelght the State line by 

seven pounds. Balancing this is the 

tact that the locals outweigh the 
I Conns in the backfield department by 
almost ten pounds to the man. 

Saturday's 7 to 7 deadlock with 
Springfield's highly rated gridst. is 
showed that State football under Hur- 

gesheimer is definitely on the upswing. 
The boys showed a rugged defense 

and a steamroller Minnesota offense 
that is bound to get belter as the 
season moves on. Husky Bob Fngle- 
hard looked even better than predic- 
tions had intimated and shared honors 
in the line with Itradv, (lark and 
Collela. In the baekliold, Santin was 
outstanding in both departments of

President's Message To Dads 

Dad's Day is one of the most successful programs the College 
has ever undertaken. It fills a real need by giving the students a 
special day to show their Dads about the campus — with that mix- 
ture of fondness and pride which young people everywhere re-serve 
for their parents. 1 hope that every dad appreciates how much 
his son or daughter looks forward to this occasion. It is my hope', 
also, that every father reading this issue of the Collegian will con- 
sider this article as a personal expression of gratitude from his 
son or daughter for his coming here to make the day the happy 
occasion we all want it to be. 

We want you to know this college and to share our pride in 
ds progress. All of us who are devoting our lives to its better- 
ment believe thoroughly in the kind of education which Masachu- 
setts State College gives. We know that the young people- who 
come here are gaining a well-rounded experience, that the college 
is helping them to build a firm foundation for life. 

Our classrooms and laboratories ate open to you on Dads' Day. 
We cordially invite you to visit them, to meet the men and women 
responsible for our educational program, and to gain some insight 
into the spirit of the teachers and students who make Massachu- 
setts College the fine institution it is today.

A sense of values is a wonderful thing. When we 
heard that the Women's Student Government As- 
sociation had decided to award points for extra- 
curricular activities we had doubts as to the value 
of the system, but upon reading the plan for distribution of points, 
we seriously doubted the amount of thought and evaluation that 
preceded the presentation of the plan. 

The proponents of the scheme say it will limit a coed to the 
activities she can undertake successfully, and open the way for 
more participation in extra-curricular activities by more coeds. 
That people should not over-indulge In extra-curriculars is a well 
known fact. On this idea the plan has merits. But on the other 
hand, there is a decided fallacy in the idea that just because the 
interested and capable people are restrained, other competent co- 
eds will immediately rush to fill the gap. Those who were inter- 
ested probably would have gone out in the first place. Another 
point to consider is that coeds with the requisite ability for leader- 
ship and participation in campus activities can't be created with a 
snap of the fingers and a magic word to succeed those recognized 
leaders who will be excluded under the point system. 

Aside from the value of the system as a whole, there are cer- 
tainly some tremendous errors of judgment in the allotment of 
points. A maximum of 35 points is allowable. For example, the 
managing editor of the Collegian receives 18 points; so does the 
president of a sorority. The managing editor of the Collegian 
averages 25 hours a week in that particular activity. We question 
whether any sorority president spends half that time or has the 
same responsibility. A Collegian reporter receives 6 points; a 
member of the Honor Commission receives 10 points. A Collegian 
reporter does at least two hours of more or less intelligent work 
every week. The Honor Commission has met twice since its for- 
mation last year. These are just outstanding examples of the 
many discrepancies. 

The Collegian does not often interfere in coed affairs, but be- 
lieves that this new system will be a detriment to Massachusetts 

State College.

RUSHING Smiles were not to be found on the faces of most 
RIGHT fraternity men Monday night because the freshmen 

BY rushing period for most houses had not reaped the 

desired reward. With a few less than half the men 
in the class of 1945 pledging, the total number was appallingly 

Some blamed the spirit of the class, some the proctors in the 
dormitories, some themselves. It is difficult to say who or what 
is to blame for the small pledging. That the Class of 1945 has been 
indolent in many respects, there is no question. They have lacked 
the customary enthusiasm in many ways this fall, and many of 
them did not make the effort to even see the fraternities. Many 
made no effort to discover what fraternities could offer. 

On the other hand, if the freshman class withheld pledging to 
buck the system of rushing, there must be something wrong. For 
neophytes to buck an established system is not defensible, but for 
the fraternities own good, the situation deserves consideration. 

On the morning after the big ware- 
house fire in Boston last month, we 
were examining the debris for evi- 
dences of sabotage. Our search 
proved fruitless for a time, but soon 
there came, out of the mists floating 
in from the harbor, a sad-visaed 
young lady, who sang a plaintive 
melody. And in her hand she carried 
a blazing pine-knot. 'Ah,' we said. 
'Here at last is a clue!' We approach- 
ed the evidently heartsick maid and 
asked: 'What, pray tell, are you doing 
with that firebrand?' She turned her 
sweetly sad gaze upon us and answer- 
ed softly: 'I'm carrying the torch for 

We searched then for this myster- 
ious Jim, but we sought vainly, and 
today we are still wondering: 'Was 
it sabotage, or was it love?' 

Generalissimo Cliank-kai-shek re- 
cently remarked: '#$%#$&@*@.' 
Or, in other words; 'I value my wife's 
aid in the war as much as I value the 
aid of ten army divisions.' We wonder 
if Coach Hargesheimer would consider 
one of State's lady cheer leaders for 
two ends, a tackle, and a running 

After Lou Nova's disillusionment at 
the hands of the unimaginative Joe 
Louis, we found ourselves still waiting 
for tbe effects of the much-publicize:! 
Cosmic Punch to transform the Brown 
Bomber'into Uranium 236. The Cali- 
fornia Yogi, quite horizontal, left the 
ring in rather punchy conditions. The 
Brown Bomber was still a vertebrate, 
and not a s'.irtlod mass of protons 
and electrons. We think Nova's Cos- 
mis Bunch was lisnamed. It should 
have been called the Cosmetic Punch.

It has been breathed about that 
Donald T. (Ace) Thayer, one of State's 
all-round athletes is working on a 
thesis which describes working condi- 
tion! in a coal mine. Ace is gathering 

atmosphere by living approximately 
twenty thousand leagues under Phi 
Sig. Anyone wishing to interview Mr. 
Thayer may enter a decompression 
chamber in the Phi Sig basement, and 
then proceed by express elevator to 
the mine Moor, where Alph, the sacred 
liver, i-uas down to a sunless sea. 
(Apologies to Coleridge). From the 
rude bridge that arches the Hood, one 
swims upstream until he reaches the 
Land of the Stalactites, known among 
tourists as Thayer Caverns. As an 
added attraction on the perilous de- 
scent, Ben (Anything for a Laugh) 
Freitas, will entertain you with an im- 
promtu speech entitled: 'My Exper- 
iences as a Prison Guard'. Every- 
thing one-handed, Ben. 

Long ago, in our wanderings, we 
came upon a hamlet deeply hidden in 
the hills. The day was Sunday. Be- 
hind the small white schoolhouse, a 
group of country boys was playing 
baseball. The diamond was very 
rough. The playing was as hammy 
as the hamlet. One could not see the 
center fielder from home plate, and 
the catcher needed a range finder to 
find second base. Here was the great 
American game in its crudest form 
But in New York, behind the Empire 
State Building, another group of ham- 
revived the memory of that once for- 
gotten bucolic baseball bacchanale. 
A team called the Dodgers and a team 
called the Yankees were trying to see 
who was tbe worst. Catcher Mickey 
Owen, (Shame on you, Mickey) drop- 
ped a third strike, and convinced us 
that the team called Dodgers was the 
worst. 'Oh. Lord, please take away 
the darkness, and let us see the light 
again.' (Hicks scorns this item). 

Our foreign office sends us this 
latest bulletin. Berlin reports: 'The 
Gentians are now only two steppes 
away from Moscow.' 

Moscow replies, bitterly: 'I hates 
you, 'cause your feet's too big.'

•'Snowfall", done for Columbia re- 
cords, is an original which Claude uaea 
as his theme song. It is highly im-

alone at his very best for almost the

COMES THE A renaiss; nee ot enthusiasm and spirit has begun 
DAWN at Massachusetts State, backed by the athletic suc- 

cesses of the last two Saturdays. Stale has never 
been a college that stoo.l behind its teams only when they were 
winning, but depression was inevitable with repeated losses. 

The fresh start this year has renewed some of the enthusiasm 
for which this college was famous in years gone by. The fall teams 
have tough schedules ahead, and the students can continue to play 
their part of the game, not only in the daily atmosphere of better 
times, but particularly in united enthusiasm at the rallies and 

Last Friday, at the first afternoon rally on Alumni Field, 
about 150 hardy students braved the mist to cheer the football 
team in its last practice session before The Connecticut game. The 
other 1100 "sugar plums" didn't arrive. The small group that turn- 
ed out really made some noise. Think what 1250 could do!

The first meeting of Tri Sig. the 
Stockbridire sorority, was held Mon- 
day evening in Memorial Hall. Initia- 
tion rules were given cut to freshmen 
wishing to join, and plans were made 
for the annual supper-meeting at Mis» 
Margaret Hamlin's residence on Oc- 
tober 20th. During the week freshmen 
will be required to do various things 
for initiation and will be accepted in- 
to the sorority at the next meeting.

The members of K. K. wish to wel- 
come the freshmen to Stockbridge. and 
hope that they are getting along ple» 
santly. If we can be of any help caJ' 
on us at any time. 

Tuesday night saw the annual 
"smoker" attract a good-sized grouo 
of freshmen. After the entertainment 
by the senior members, cookies, ic» 
cream, and cider were served. 


A. T. G. 

Last night at a highly successful 
smoker, a friendly hand of welcome 
was extended to the men of the class 
of '4:5. The program was high-lighted 
by the presence of such friends of A 
T. 6. as Prof. Charles H. Thayer, 
Lorin Ball, and Doric Alviani, all of 
the faculty; "Pop" Barrett, "Pop" 
Springer, and Avery Barrett, mem- 
bers of the Board of Trustees. 

Group singing, ably directed by 
Mr. Alviani, gave the frosh a real 
taste of college spirit. Movies, refresh- 
ments, and cigarettes also added 
greatly fo the enjoyment of all. 

A. T. G. takes this opportunity te 
wish the freshmen, both men and 
women ,a most successful scholastic 
year — no mention being necessary of 
the social side, which has a way of 
working itself out. 



Fred Glanville and Milton Fortune, 
class of '41, left New England on 
September 28th for East St. Louis, Il- 
linois, where they are to become fly- 
ing cadets in the regular army. 

Mary Brown and William Williams, 
members of the class of '41, were 
married shortly after graduation in 
June. They are now located in Rutland, 
Massachusetts, on a dairy farm, the 
gift of the groom's parents. Congratu- 



With us this year we have two 
refugees from occupied France. They 
are American citizens, although they 
have been in this country only about 
a year. Their father, a member of the 
A. E. F. in World War I, married a 
French girl and remained abroad as 
a farmer. The boys are dividing their 
interests between animal husbandry 
and poultry husbandry. 

Welcome Alain and Gilles deLeiris! 


Stockbridgc's sturdy football squad 
squares off against Vermont Academy 
at Saxton's River thin Saturday for 
the season's opener. 

Coach Ball's big aggressive outfit 
won't be looking for any easy pick- 
ings tip at Saxton's River. Vermont 
Academy, although nosed out G to 
by Albany Academy in their opening 

encounter, can always be depended 
upon to field a capable eleven against 
the "Blue and White" footballers. 

Because of the keen competition for 
starting berths only three veterans are 
assured of first team positions. Capt. 
"Touch" Downey, the iron man with a 
galvanized constitution, will hold 
down right tackle. George Perry will 
get the nod at center over frosh 
Danckert, and Clayton Southard will 
resume possession of his old slot at 
right end. 

The strong play of the line is en- 
couraging a growing optimism for a 
banner season. The line is shaping up 
bigger and better than last fall's for- 
ward wall and is richer in reliable re- 
serves. The team is three deep at 
tackle with such huskies at Teittinen. 
Red Williams, Leonard. Gorman and 
Nelson awaiting the call. Bartosik. 
Kuzmiski, Wade and Dougherty are 
playing heads-up ball at end. and 
frosh Danckert is doincr a workman- 
like job at his center post. Four men. 
Hunter, Gibbs, Little and Bak are in 
the running for the two guard posts 
vacated by graduation. 

Coach Ball is still juggling his back- 
field quartets at this writing, in order 
to obtain the most balance without, 
sacrificing heft. "Mike" Woynar. 
chunky senior, has definitely grabbed 
the quarterback spot by displaying a 
lust for heavy duty blocking and by 
his marked deftness at chucking the 
pigskin. Freshmen Tryon, Stevens, 
Scott, and "Prexy" Belmont have giv- 
en good accounts of themselves in 
the inter-squad scrimmages and wil' 
see heavy service Saturday. Robello, 
graduated from last year's line, is 
making a bid for the right half-back 
position. Greenhouse, Roebuck, and 
Geary have all shown enough poise 
and ability to mark them for activity 
in the opener.

Christian Federation Off To Big Year Under 
Mr. Easton and Spencer Potter 

"We've got a good leader; he's full 
of ideas, puts things through, and his 
wife helps him!" remarked "Spence" 
Potter, president of the Christian Fed- 
eration, in reviewing the qualities of 
William Burnett Easton, new director 
of Religious Activties at Massachu- 
setts State College. "It's the kind of 
leadership we need," he added. 

This year the Federation program 
will function in five main fields. Dis- 
cussion groups for freshmen are a 
major project at present. Interested 
students may attend discussion ses- 
sions running over a period of six 
weeks, on the topics: Building an Ade- 
quate Philosophy of Life, Teachings 
of Jtsus, Science and Religion, and 
Christianity in Our World. 

The groups will be led by qualified 
members of the faculty. A discussion 
group especially for upperclassmen 
will also be organized. 

A second project of special import- 
ance to students interested in actual 
church work is offered through the 
needs of the Hope Negro Church in 
Amherst. Student groups will furnish 
leadership for evening services, choir 
direction, and Sunday School teaching. 
Another opportunity is open for dex- 
terous students to volunteer manual 
labor the material improvements need- 
ed in the church. 

As an interesting sidelight, Spencer 

mentioned the work of a sophomore 
boy, Bob Young, who worked in Am- 
herst the past summer and filled the 
pulpit of the Hope Church during the 
entire season. 

The Federation is making special 
efi'xt to cooperate with local ministers 
and parishes and to spread the spirit 
of youthful Christianity through con- 
tact with residents of Amherst. Stu- 
dents may visit and read to shut-ins, 
and also assist in Sunday school teach- 

Student deputations may be sent on 
request from churches in this region 
to take charge of Young Peoples' 
group meetings and to lead discussions 
on any desired topic. 

Last but not least in the Federations' 
present detailed plans for the year is 
the sponsoring cf short worship ser- 
vices which will aim to emphasize in- 
dividual self-improvement and spirit- 
ual rgowth among students. 

A leader in his own right, Spencer 
Potter exemplifies the capable chair- 
man of such a group. A Senator, a 
member of Adelphia, a letterman on 
ihe soccer team, president of his fra- 
ternity, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, and 
carnival chairman for this year's "win- 
ter weekend", Spence still finds time 
to be, as he classifies himself, "a gen- 
eral man underfoot."

"Pirates of Penzance" 
Operetta This Year 

7th Annual Presentation 
To He Another (Gilbert 
and Sullivan Selection 

The seventh annual presentation of 
the combined musical clubs on the 
campus this year will be the Gilbert 
and Sullivan operetta, "Pirates of Pen- 
zance." Performances will be given on 
March 19, 20, and 21, in Bowker Au- 
ditorium, Stockbridge Hall. Last year's 
plan of reserving the first night for 
high school students from the valley 
was so successful that it will be fol- 
lowed again this year. 

Of the eleven shows written by Gil- 
bert and Sullivan, Mass. State has per- 
formed six. These were: "Trial by 
Jury," "Utopia— Limited", "Ruddi- 
gor", "Mikado", "Gondoliers" and "J. 
M. S. Pinafore." This year's offering 
promises to surpass all other produc- 
tions, especially as William E. Clark, 
the star of last year's show, is now 
being considered for a part again this 

"Pirates of Penzance", is a very ela- 
borate show, and will take an extreme- 
ly large cast. All students are eligible 
for try-outs. Trial for the principal 
parts for women will be October 14, 
and those for the leading men's parts 
will be October 28. The chorus will be 
made up of men and women chosen 
from the glass clubs and the music 
will be rehearsed along with their 
regular repertoire.

Intersorority Council Seeks To 
Eliminate Rush From Rushing 

Ruth Helyar Announces That Sorority Campaign For 
Pledges Next Sunday; Rules Revised to Facilitate 
Period For Both Freshmen and Upperclassmen 

In order to remove the rushing from sorority rushing, Ruth 
Helyar, President of the tnter-aorority Council, announced that 
rushing will extend through a period of four weeks. 

This extension of time will give the freshman girll more time 
to decide about the sororities the.v wish to join. 

Rushing for the freshman girls will begin with the Round 
Robin Tea on October 19 and will close with pledging at noon, 
Saturday, November 15. The four Thursdays proceeding pledging] 
the sorority houses will hold open house teas from 2:30 to 6 :.'{() 
p. m. All regular four-year women students shall be eligible for in- 
vitation to membership in the sororities. 

No woman pledged to a sorority during pledge week can be 
initiated into that sorority until a scholarship average of 70% 
je attained as shown by the report of the previous semester's work.

Mass electrocutions have been 
taking place every day in the garage 
of a prominent Massachusetts State 
College professor! Dr. Harry New 
ton click, professor of psychology on 

this campus, is the owner and operator 
of an electrical device for killing 
millions of lives. 

"I don't think a fly suffers any pain 
and 1 don't care if he docs," stated 
Dr. Click in regard to the operation 
of his electric "fly popper" which has 
done a rather thorough job of elimina- 
ting the winged pests in the vicinity 
ol 30 North Hadley Road this summer. 

Shallow and rectangular in shape, 
the device is topped by two grills of 
parallel wires placed one over the 
other to form a network that is 
electrically charged. A small amount 
..f cheese or molasses placed under 
the grili work is all that is necessary 
to attract the Hies. In attempting to 
reach he bait, the fly cannnot avoid 
ouching the wires, and that contact 
produces a "snap" that can be heard 
twenty feet away, said Dr. Click. 
"Vou can sometimes see a spark! 
The fly can't yet away once he's touch- 
ed the wires because his winys arc 
burned, "he added. 

"The thing will hold about a bushel 
it Mies,' Dr. Click estimated, and the 
amount of electricity used is negli- 
gible since no current is used except 
when something touches the wires — 
■ system corresponding to the modern 
electric fences for cattle. 

3 Sophomores Named 
To Collegian Board 

Alice Majjuire, Edna 
MacNamara, and Urad 
Morton are Chosen 

The cost of running the machine is 
figured as "a million flies for a penny," 
be remarked. 

The "popper", which is made in 
California and is fairly expensive to 
buy, is especially designed to be used 
in farm yards and dairy barns. There 
is also an arrangement for using an 
eledric light as the attraction for 
drawing mosquitoes and gnats into 
contact with the charged wires. The 
device can be lighted up in the yard 
and will take care of the pest problem 
on any warm summer evening! 

The slight odor of many singed 
wings mgiht make the apparatus ob- 
jectionable for use inside the house, 
explained Dr. Click, but he plans to 
make good use of it in his garage 
during strawberry season next year. 

"I got it the last of July and it's 
killed about a peck of flies since then!" 
he said. "That thing does a big busi- 
ness in the evenings when the flies 

congregate in the warm garage. They 

POP on there half as fast as you can 
count 'em. I think that's progress — 

a thing like that," he concluded.

FACULTY Last June at Commencement exercises, Clement F. 
AND Burr, as president of the class of 1941, recommend- 

STUDENTS ed, in his address on class night, that the class of 
1942 take upon itself as part of its senior activities 
the organization of more faculty-student activities be organized 
and more friendly social relations be established between the two 

Among the specific suggestions made were that the faculty 
and students meet for afternoon teas occasionally and that both 
groups endeavor to meet more freely at dances. 

These ideas unquestionably have merit and as this year gets 
underway it seems as though the Senate and the W. S. G. A. might 
seek out faculty opinion on the matter. More congenial faculty- 
student relations could certainly do no harm and certainly would 
tend to a better understanding of each group by the other. 

Besides the factor of pleasure involved in such meetings, there 
is another aspect to the situation: the aim of a college education 
is to develop the whole personality and mentality. The faculty are 
often called upon to state an opinion on some person and very 
often, they are equipped only to state a rating of ability in some 
narrow field. Usually in business or industry, the employer wants 
to know more about the person as an individual. Few on the college 
staff are equipped to rate a person adequately on his total ability. 

Perhaps a more full program of faculty-student gatherings 
would tend to form a more united college and a better life for 
both faculty and students. 

We learned recently from the "New 
York Times" that at various times in 
the past the Russians have levied 
taxes on beards. The British have 
taxed windows, hearths, butlers, and 
coats-of-arms. The Rumanians have 
taxed funerals; the Italians, bicycles 
and bachelors, and the state of Mary- 
land taxed the vest which John Brown 
wore at his hanging. 

Accordingly, Fiat Insolvency Epps, 
noted economist, has suggested that 
the government place a tax on bald 
heads. 'This,' blurted Fiat, as he 
wiped the egg from his vest, 'Will be 
a source of great revenue, besides 
helping to remove the unfairness from 
the price of combs and hair oil affect- 
ing the privileged few who still have 

We were shocked to learn later that 
Fiat was bribed by the Forest Glade 
Hair Oil Company, which places its 
reputation on the ability of its product 
to make a billiard ball look like Tos- 
cannini in less time than it takes to 
say Barber of Seville. Fiat does not 
pay how the bald are to avoid being 
shot into a corner pocket while wait- 
ing for the oil to turn a man into a 
sheep dog. 

This week we celebrated Columbus 
Day, in memory of the explorer. (Did 
someone call him snorer?) Histor- 
ians, who are always correcting us on 
some point we were not correct on, 
now tell us that Chria was not the 
first to set foot on the New World. 
In A. D. 614, a Norseman, Chugar, by 
name, chugged his way to America 
and stubbed his toe on this rock-bound 
coast. After one look at the place, 
Chugar was heard to chug-a-rum, after 
which he sailed rapidly back to Nor- 
way. The spot where he landed on is 
now known as Brooklyn. That ex- 
plains his hurried departure. 

We were gratified by State's per-

formance against Norwich. The col

annihilation for the Maroon and White 
but. the prophets should be eating 
their words right now. Outweighed 
and underrated, the Statesmen really 
lost on the 'breaks'. The final scon 
does not tell the true story, because 
yard for yard, State was a good match 
for everything the Norwich behemoths 
had to offer. 

For years now, our team has car- 
ried the rather austere cognomen of 
'Statesmen'. This year, because of 
the team's whirlwind play, we think 
the name 'Maroon Monsoon' appropri- 
ate. Perhaps then Dorothy Lamour, 
or some other wind-blown star will 
donate an autographed sarong for 
Captain Brady to wear. At present 
our only South Seas props are a be- 
moustached tackle, and a couple of 
coconuts Henry Miller has been saving 
in case the new-fangled water contrap- 
tion breaks down. 

We sound here a plea for justice. 
The college store is somewhat of a 
Mecca for students. There, libations 
are poured in honor of the curly-hair- 
ed gods who rule the music-filled air 
of proms and vie parties. But when 
the chapel bells spill silver across the 
campus, and darkness weaves moods 
romantic and mysterious, the store be- 
comes dark, unhallowed, forgotten. 

And above the store, so close to 
Mecca, but too often unsung, dwell 
the residents of North College. North 
College is a girls' dorm. The vener- 
able edifice has been overshadowed by

BARRETT Last Saturday during the Norwich-State game 
TO PROF. when the wind was realty frosty, Prof. Rollin H. 
Barrett stood on his little tower over the press box 
taking pictures of the game. These pictures are used each week by 
Coach Walter Hargesheimer to diagnose the team's difficulties. 
Taking these pictures is no little task and The Collegian takes this 
opportunity to call attention to the work Professor Barrett is doing. 

Photography, although not a recent discovery, has achieved 
its greatest peak in the past few years, and the college has taken 
advantage of the opportunities photography can offer. Professor 
Barrett has been a pioneer in recording college history and in pre- 
serving the outstanding events in a class's years here. 

In addition to his work as college photographer, Professor 
Barrett has done yeoman service with the public address system. 
Particularly during the rally season he Has been always ready to 
set up the amplifying system for use any place, any time. 

We write this tribute, not only in recognition of work done, 
but more in recognition of the unselfish, jovial, and co-operative 
way the service is rendered. 

By George Benoit 

One evening, deep in the depression, 
Benny Goodman and the boys were re- 
laxing in one of the New York clubs. 
A little guy walked in, clad in an 
ancient tux, very frowsy around the 
elbows and knees. He wandered over 
to the piano, sat down, and began 

Two weeks later Jess Stacy was 
playing piano with the old Goodman 
band. Any man that can play Chicago 
like Jess will always be close to the 
Goodman bosom. 

Jess is one of the few 'jazz-men' 
in American music. Like Muggsy 
Spanier, Jess 'plays* all the time, al- 
ways with intense feeling. He wan- 
ders on and off the tune with consum- 
mate ease. In our opinion, Jess has 
the best left hand in jazz. 

Catch Jess on Ziggy Elman's Blue- 
bird recording of 'Bye N' Bye'. Zig 
was leading a small pickup band, com- 
posed of Goodman stalwarts and a 
few boys from Duke Ellington who 
had nothing to do at the time. Ziggy 
takes the first chorus. In this record 
wo hear the Ziggy of 'Bublitchki', not 
the Ziggy who plays a blatant trumpet 
in Tommy Dorsey's band for the bene- 
fit of the high-schoolers. He takes 
the first chorus. 

Then Jess comes in slowly — wan 
ders-off the tune — almost gets lost- 
little children all alone in the forest. 

Here Stacy is at his best, playing 
simple left hand chords with a one 
finger bottob. Listen closely — you can 
here staying on the straight and 
narrow by humming the tune. Jess 
undoubtedly had his eyes closed on 
this one. A habit of his when he 
really gets tender. 

On his way home Jess meets Ben 
Webster's deep tenor. We think about 
that, my sister and I.

To the Editor of the Collegian: 

Any member of the student body 
who read the sport page of ft" ( "'" 
logian of the above date was not only 
s urprised, but startled at the lack of re- 
cognition given to the varsity football 
team by a student paper whom duty 
it is to support to its utmost the

The football team started <>ut a sea- 
son with not only spirit but a demon- 
stration of stamina that has ^en ex- 
emplified by the tie with Spring 
and a victory over Connecticut. This

Capt. Chambliss, New Addition To 
Military Dept, Gives Impressions 

Dates Of Several Musical 
Events Announced 

"I like New England very much", 
said Captain James R. Chambliss, new 
member of the military department. 
"Particularly the varied terrain, the 
freshness of the countryside and the 
villages." Captain Chambliss is also 
impressed by the intellectual atmo- 
sphere of New England, particularly 
with the feeling that education beyond 
college was important. 

Captain Chambliss is originally 
from Georgia and has come to State 
from Harvard where he has been 
studying for his Doctor's degree in 


The Vespers speaker for this Sun-

Conference in Ware 

"Exploring New Frontiers" will be 
the subject of an address by President 
Hugh Potter Baker next Sunday night 
in the East Congregational Church in 
\\ are. 

President Baker will speak before

Chairman Spencer R. Potter '42, has 
called a meeting of the 1941 winter 
carnival committee for tonight at 
seven in Memorial Hall. Preliminary 
plans will be made and several new 
committee members elected. 

Sociology, the work for which he has 
not yet completed. He is quite M au- 
thority on population and the ratio 
of boys to girls at birth. As Captain 
Chambliss has a wife and a small son, 
lie also claims to know a great deal 
about the "American family." 

After graduating from the Univer- 
sity of Georgia, where he was in the 
R. O. T. C. unit, Captain Chambliss 
received a reserve commission. He has 
had four years of army duty during 
which time he was with the 6th caval- 
ry unit at Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, 
with the C. M. T. C. Unit and \vu.. 
camp commander and district inspec- 
tor in the C. C. C. He was also en- 
gaged in recruiting duty and other 
army activities. 

When asked for his opinion on 
world affairs, Captain Chambliss said 
that no one can know the true condi- 
tions existing today because of the 
secrecy with which diplomatic and 
military movements are cloaked. The 
general outlook, however, is now en- 
couraging and he foresees "a long 
period Of disturbance, both interna- 
tional and national."

Stockbridge Takes Vermont Academy 
14 • 9 

Spark«<l by Mike Woynar, the one 
man gang, Coach Ball's football mac- 
hine rolled over Vermont Academy 14 
to last Saturday. Stockbridge 
struck dramatically in the opening 
minutes after Georgia Perry smoth- 
ered a Vermont fumble on the opposi- 
tion's 28-yard line. The first play, a 
savage smash at the line, failed; but 
the boys made it sub par for the 
course when Woynar fired a 30-yard 
\,:. to "Cm ar" Kuzmiski for the 
M-ore. Mike, who was the driving 
force in both touehdown drives, con- 
verted the fir-t of his two "points 
after the touchdown." 

'inly minuic- later, the battling Blue 
and Wh!t« ■wept down tl <■ BaM again, 
completely bewildering a stunned V< r 
mont team. Woynar, Tryon, and 

Rubelo were skirting the ends and 
plunging through gaps that looked 
like open prairie in the line. The in- 
evitable touchdown was chalked up on 
another pass — Woynar to Robello — 
from the fifteen-yard line. 

That ended the scoring for the 
afternoon, but not because the tide of 
battle changed. A fumble on the 20- 
yard stripe broke up a promising 
thrust in the second quarter, and the 
game ended with Stockbridge on the 
one-foot line with a third down coming 

Red Stevens was more than slightly 
terrific. He churned through the 
chosen slots when opened, and fre- 
quently when barricaded by burly 
opponents. He's a solid specimen, 
built along the lines of a B & M 
freight engine. Red was stopped only 
after the whole line buried him under. 
Robello was one reason why Vermont 
failed to get past Stockbridge's 35- 
yardmarker. He snatched four Ver- 
mont aerials out of the ozone — John- 
nie Hunter, starting guard, was for- 
ced out of action with a leg injury 
early in the first period. It is feared 
that he may be out for football for a 
few weeks — George Perry also 
caused some concern when he was 
clouted on the knee early in the game. 
However his injury soon proved to 
be far less serious than was first 
supposed — Everett Bartlett, a veter- 
an who is still taking his board at the 
Infirmary because of any injury inflic- 
ted during an early season scrimmage, 
was given the pigskin copped by our 
victorious squad. It was autographed 
by the coaches and members of the 

Readers please note: The name 
should be Greenhalgh, not Greenhouse 
as spelled in last week's sports spread. 


Both Stockbridge fall squads travel 
to Ashburnham this Saturday to meet 
Cushing Academy. In spite of their 
brilliant victory over Vermont Aca- 
demy the footballers are soft-pedaling 
any rosy-hued visions of an easy win. 
Cushing is the big stumbling block in 
Stockbridge's march toward the per- 
fect season. The Ashburnham team 
has topped Wilbraham 7-0 and Deer- 
field ll>-0 on successive Saturdays, i nd 
will come up to this game on the 
heavy end of the odds. 

The "hill and dalers" are tapering 
off this week for their first meet of 
the season against Cushing. Coach 
Derby's boys will present a strong 
team, lead by the long-winded quartet 
of Captain Lin Hibbard, Stan Lachut, 
Emil Tonet, and Frank Bundy.

Prof. Orton Clark Indulges In Wo >d 
Carving To Keep Out of Mischief 

By Brad Morton 


FreshinM progress reports will be 
given students by their advisers Tues- 
day, October 2H, according to an an- 

nonneement by the dean's office. 

Prof. Orton L. Clark of the botany 
department combine! his knowledge of 
ptant structure and symmetry with an 
acute knack for wood-carving to pro- 
duce some masterfully constructed 
pieces of furniture and attractive odds 
and ends which are most cleverly 
adorned with designs taken from natu- 
ral growths in plants. 

His office overflows with an intri- 
guing collection of articles. Among 
these is an old spice-mortar, which is 
carved, Prof. Clark explains of oak, 
which, because of its strength, will not 
split under the impact of constant 
pounding. Although it is exceedingly 
old, it still retains a fragrant odor of 
spice and cloves. Also on his shelves 
is a marlinspike which was originally 
round, but has taken on an oval shape, 
due to the cell growth in the wood. 

He also produced a tennis racquet 
in the early stage of production to 
show how it was laminated, with a 
handle composed of several layers of 
wood of various types. He remarked 
further that this served to illustrate 
the perfection of nature and its utility 
in solving industrial problems. Per- 
haps one of the most interesting 
products of his skill is a movable 
bookcase, with shelves inclined up- 
wards to expose the titles of the vol- 
umes to view. On the top shelf are 
carved the names of several famous 
men of his profession, while the ends 
are inlaid with motiffs designed to re- 

present the first protoplasm ever 
the root growth of Wood, and oth 
■tractive and ornamental desigi 

His home is of more inters 
possible, than the office. In his ;u . 
den he has what he calls a le;i n- 
wood brush, which derives its i qm 
from the fact that it is every b a- 
tough and pliable as hide. Tin- 
stone before the front door was 
him by a geologist of note, from « 
brother he purchased the hous. It 
contains the imprint of a dinn air, 
something by no means eommoa. 
Within the house Prof. Clark's 1. ., 
work is apparent throughout, si). 
itself in the form of designs on tablet. 
bookends, and sundry other articles, 
One of his tables is mounted upon two 
legs, one at each end, and shaped like 
Grecian vases. A footstool before i . 
of the fireplaces is constructed on the 
same plan, except that the legs repre- 
sent bowls of Boston baked I nans. 
Beside his guest-book lies a pencil 
from Thoreau and Sons., of Concord 
Also on the walls is a drawing done 
by Thoreau at Walden Pond. The 
professor also has a painting of bJJ 
friend, Sidney Waugh, for which ru- 
tins made a frame of his own. With 
regard to his hobby, Prof. Clark say-. 
"I've been at it ever since I u.v 
knee-high to a grass-hopper. It's a 
good way to keep out of mischief on 
a Sunday after-noon." 

Excerpts From 1916 Collegians 
Show Life at M. A. C. 25 Years Ago 

Last night one of the Collegian re- 
porters, in a rather curious mood, 
looked back over the volume of 1910. 
That was when Registrar Lanphcar 
was managing editor of The Collegian 
and Treasurer Hawley was manager 
of the baseball association. Among the 
interesting items in the fall of 1D1G, 
25 years ago, are the following: 

"One hundred and fifty-three stu- 
dents, nine of them young women, 
were the official registration figures 
given out Saturday for the class of 

"Aggie students will be offered an 
unusually good program of motion pic- 
tures in Stockbridge auditorium Sat- 
urday evening when the social union 
committee plans to show two five-reel 
feature films. Inasmuch as a ban has 
been put upon the town hall show 
the students will have a good oppor- 
tunity to see good pictures at the 
usual price of ten cents." 

"M. A. C. won its first football game 
of the season Saturday when it de- 
flated Connecticut Aggies 12-0 on 
Alumni Field." 

"After a more or less extensive in 
vestigation of conditions existing at 
It. A. C, the committee appointed hy

first hearing Wednesday. Although it 
is rumored that there is some criticism 
because solid geometry, French, etc..

has been postponed." 

"Numerous accidents in front of the 
physics building have made it expe- 
dient to remove the nearby fountain 
which obstructs the view when OM ll

The following is from a eoiiinuii.i- 
cation, "The rushing season is 0f*C«

In what will be the last home gam- 
of the season, the Massachusetts Stat, 

soccer team engages an undefeate , 

Coast Guard squad Saturday on 

Alumni Field. 

Not a great deal is known ahoui 
the opponent except that it is rumored 
to he tin- beat edition of the Middle! 
to be put out in the put few years. 

There will be several shifts in the 
State lineup for the game. Trufant 
s scheduled to start his first game at 
halfhack while Callahan will be shift- 
ed to center forward, Kokoski will 

till Callahan's place at the inside while 
either Hebert or Logothetta are sched- 
uled to start at right wing. Erickson 
won't piay due to a troublesome leg. 
ilowcvcr, the big question will he the 
goal. Either Gianotti or Bangs is 
scheduled to start and one is as much 
a possibility as the other since both 
nave injuries. Bangs is suffering 
from an injured ban dwhile Gianotti's 
leg is hampering him slightly. It is 
a lair bet however, that Gianotti will 
start since at the goal, the hands are 
more important than the legs. 

The rest of the team will remain in- 
tact witn Ed Podolak and Duke Sur- 
ges in the backfield and Bob Mullany, 
Steve Papp, and Gihhy Arnold in the 
forward line. Saturday should see a 
doeely fought game with a re-vitalized 
State squad taking the field.

Since the meet with Tufts originally 
scheduled for October 11, was cancell- 
ed, the State harriers have had an ex- 
ceptionally long period to train for 
their opening contest, and are in good 
condition. During the last two week.- 
all of the boys have been out taking 
over distance workouts in order to 
build stamina and wear off those extra 
ponuds gained during the summer. 

The season as now scheduled is a 
comparatively short one, and lists only 
one home meet, when a strong Spring- 
held aggregation comes here on Thurs- 
day. October thirty. The other meets 
find M. S. C. traveling to Worcester 
Tech on October 25; to New London, 
Conn, for the Connecticut Valley- 
Championship, on Novemher 4; and to 
Franklin Park for the New England 
Championships on November tenth. 

A final meet originally scheduled 
with Trinity for November 14. has 
been canceled because the Hilltoppers 
have discontinued cross country. 

This week's encounter at Franklin 
lark marks the seventh in the rivalry 
with M. I. T. which started in 1898 
Dining that time, the Maroon and 
White squad has taken four of the 
contests, the most recent being last 
year's 23-39 win.

Norwich University's cadet football 
team rode out of Vermont, administer- 
ed the old one two punch to State, 
added another for good measure, and 
wound up on the long side of a 20 to 
score last Saturday afternoon at 
Alumni Feld before a near capacity 
Dad's Day crowd. 

Capitalising on two State fumbles, 
Loth of them inside the 25-yard line, 
Norwich moved to a pair of touch- 
downs in the opening period. The 
tnird tally came in the fourth period 
when a pass interception on the Nor- 
wich -ID-yard line paved the way for 
another cadet surge. 

Unable to cut through the Norwich 
line for consistent gains the States- 
men were confined largely to an after- 
noon of defensive play, and with the 
exception of the first period, when 
both Norwich scoring bids material- 
ized within striking distance of the 
goal line, the State line successfully 
throttled the Cadet running attack. 
Big gun Walter Domina, apparently 
under wraps, dented the defense infre- 
quently, although carrying over for 
Norwich's first touchdown. Heavy 
duties were left to quarterback Mc- 
( allister, who tallied touchdown num- 
ber two. 

Only in the final period did State 
present a formidable defensive ges- 
ture. Freita's pass however, thrown 
from just inside the 60-yard line, in 
Norwich territory, was intercepted by 
Zmikis whose ensuing 58-yard dash 
set up the Cadet's third score. 
The summary: 

Norwich l.*? 7 — 20

Big Green Scores Five 
To Take Locals In Rain 

The combination of a soggy, strange 
field under drizzling skies and a gener- 
al attack of "OF Man Blues" succeeded 
in blasting the State hooters hopes of 
a victory over the Big (ire-en of D.\rt 
mouth last Friday when the Wave 
ingufed them under a Hood of five- 
goals to a corresponding nil for the 
Hi igg.smen. 

According to several players on the 
squad, who had a chance to see the 
game firsthand, Dartmouth was pos- 
sibly two but not five goals better than 
the Statesmen. The first marker 
trickled by goalie Bangs in rather 
dubious fashion early in the Ant 
period. Before long, the ball, slimy 
from ita coating of Hanover's Good 
Liquid Earth, slid through Howie 
Fangs* benumbed hands for the second 

Belying the score however, Podolak, 
Potter, and Gizienski played their 
usual fine brand of ball. The forward 
line was weaker than usual and an 
ailing hand gave Bangs more trouble- 
in the goalie slot. 

Saturday Frown heat them unimpres- 
sively, 11 to 0. 

It was a last minute pail intercep- 
tion that saved the agnu- for Brown, 
and the 1'anis were constantly threat- 
ening to steal the bacon. 

Apparently undamaged hy last 
week's rugged battle the Maroon and 
White will wade into Rhode Island 
with a full squad. Benny Freitas, 
who was confirmed to the Infirmary 
with a cold over the holiday, is ex- 
pected to be back in the lineup.

We gave to one of the Collegian competitors this week the as- 
signment of finding out something about the Memorial Room. The 
story turned in did not tell much of the Memorial Room. But some- 
how this cub reporter's story seems to carry a thought we all 
might well read. 

"The closeness of war to our campus as well as to the rest ot 
the country just now makes us see our Memorial Room with 
heightened respect. 

"It was nearly twenty years ago, in June, 1921, that Memorial 
Hull was dedicated by the alumni to the 49 members of Massachu- 
setts State College who gave their lives in the first World War. 
Now with another war in view this year's freshmen are particular- 
ly interested in the story of the dimly-lit shrine that symbolizes 
the thought behind the Memorial Building. 

"While ninety percent of this monument is filled with hurry- 
ing, shouting undergraduates, this one quiet corner north of the 
popular commuters' room keeps the 'memory of those who lie

We have it on unimpeachable au- 
thority that William E. Clark, our 
tam-o-shantered cheer leader and gen- 
eral campus comedian, has taken the 
pledge, and was actually seen to yivo 
two cans of beer the cold shoulder.

we would not be surprised to wake up 
some morning to find that Joe Jodka 
had drowned in his bathtub.

The new diner opened its doors in 
a blaze of jrlory. 

Three strange characters have come 
among us. They are Mrs. Ganhh, 
Mrs. Merzack, and Mrs. Pulsen. They 
met while diving for a cigaretU butt. 

Mrs. Pulsen, a notorious shop-lifter 
immediately after her arrival here, 
tried to abscond with the Math Build 
Lug. She had it hidden under hel 
ample cloak when she was apprehend 
ed by Tom Moran. 

Courageous Mrs. Merzack appeared 
on campus early one morning armed 
with a bull whip and a chair, and 
dreued in tights. She proceeded to 
lame Wilder Hall. While Mrs. Mer- 
zack brandished the chair and cracked 
the whip, Mrs. Ganhh was sitting in 
the chair, and singing 'We ought to 
do this more often.' 

A little ahead of the hunting season, 
Mrs. Ganhh appeared in the College 
Store dragging a dead polar bear. 
She smiled grotesquely at reporters 
and remarked simply: 'In Baffin Land 
I am known as '112-gun Ganhh'.

following report: 'The Japs have 
captured a vast quantity of mechan-

our best bicycles, a scooter, and a 
roller skate with a broken wheel.' 
Stunned by this loss, General Wun

Roister Doisters Will 
Inaugurate New Ideas 

Several new ideas will be inaugu- 
rated by the Roister DoisteTS in their 
program this year. All plans are in- 
definite at present but a committee 
is Working out the exact details. 

The group plans to eliminate the 
winter play because of lack of sup- 
port. To replace this elimination, the 
dramatic society plans to sponsor a 
competition of three one-act plays. 
Tin- rules of this event nave not yet 
been announced. 

The climax of the dramatic season 
will lie the production of a motion 
picture in color. Scripts are being con- 
sidered for tli is major event and the 
results and rehearsal schedule will be 
revealed in detail later. 

The Roister Doisters will conclude 
their successful season with their 

commencement play. Last year the 

group presented, "George Washington 
Slept Here," which proved to be a 
huge success. This performance is al- 
ways (lone twice, once on High School 
Day and again at Commencement. 

"When the Deep Purple Falls, or 
Ferdinand's Flight to Fame", has been 
chosen for the Campus Varieties pres- 
entation in Bowker Auditorium Fri- 
day, October .'11, following the Adel- 
phia rally. 

A football story written by George 
LaUffton, co-author of "Tainted 
Blood'", the presentation promises to 
be a thrilling melodrama for a worthy 
cause, student leader day. 

Westcott Shaw and Francis Cough- 
lin, in charge of the production, have 
announced the leading roles as fol- 
lows: Ferdinand Eversneeze Glips, 
William Clark; Gridiron Cert, Lurane 
Wells; Dean Burns, Carl Nastri; Pru- 
dence Abigail Burns (the dean's 
daughter), Beverly Bigwood. 

The radio announcer is Robert X. 
Triggs and Robert ftelley is Sigmund. 
Other important players will be an- 
nounced in the next Collegian.

To the Editor 
Massachusc tts Collegian 

Dear Sir: 

The Amherst Community Associa- 
tion is seeking help of its citizens to 
establish a fund for furtherance of 
its welfare activities. 

I found on my desk a card asking 
for my assistance. At the bottom of 
the card was the word "Over". On 
the reverse side, written by hand, not 
signed, was the following: 

October 21, 1941. 

"If this individual still lives here 

and thinks he does — he should 

be taught to recognize his civic 

duties or otherwise." 

Does the Amherst Community Asso- 
ciation endorse this method of insult 
ami threat to gain funds for altruistic 
and humane purposes? 

Very truly yours,

Editor, Collegian: 

Every student at Massachusetts 
State College pays a certain sum thru 
his activities fee toward the activities 
of the college band. This is partially 
■petit in the endeavor to spread the 
fame of Massachusetts State College 
to various points in the country by 
means of playing at football games. 

The band members put tedious hours 
every week into preparation for the 
few simple maneuvers at the half on 
Saturdays. As a reward for this serv- 
ice, they are allowed to spend the 
money which the student body gives 
to their .support toward trips to out 
of town games. 

This year band members had their 
hearts set on their chance to sh >w 
that, for once, Massachusetts State 
has as good a band as Rhode Island. 
At the first of one of the three 
planned rehearsals for last week, on 
Wednesday afternoon last, it was an- 
nounced that the planned trip to 
Rhode Island had been cancelled by 
the proper officials. 

It is only fair for tin- students an ! 

alumni to know that this is the rea- 
son the football team had no organ- 
ized support at their encounter with 
Rhode Island.

numerous transfer students turned 
out on masse for ■ round robin tea 
at the five sororities. This was the 
fiist of a series of five teas which 

make op the rushing program. 

The freshmen and transfers met at 
Muttei field House at 2:00 p. m., where 
they formed alphabetical groups of 
2. r > or .10 students each. Then super- 
vised by the Intersorority Council, 
they started on a tour of the five 
Sororities, Alpha Lambda Mu, Chi 
Omega, Sigma Keta Chi, Sigma lota, 
and Phi /eta. 

Five houses, five teas, five groups 
of smiling girls greeted them in the 
course of the afternoon. They were 
brought on lengthy tours of the four 
houses, all in tip-top condition, and 

entertained at the old chapel by Sig- 
ma Iota. They dined merrily on sand- 
wiches, punch, Russian Tea, cookies, 
nuts, and more sandwiches along the 

The second tea in their behalf is 
this afternoon. It is one of four open 
house teas taking place on the four 
Thursdays proceeding pledging. At 
this time all the sororities will be 
open to freshmen and transfers who 
desire to attend.

Rather recently, Columbia called 
them all together again to do "When 
the Sun Comes out". The record be- 
gins with an off-key introduction by 
the Brass section. Then Benny comes 
in on the same off-key, picks up the 
scent and guides Helen along. Try to 
find the note where Benny gets back 
on the straight and narrow path. It 
comes in the middle of his solo. It is 
very deceptive because Benny is 
backed up by the reed section, blowing 
rhythm notes. Listen to Benny's im- 
provised backup throughout Helen's 
solo — but don't miss Helen's vocal. 
It is a splendid example of what she 
can do. Incidentally, Helen is now 
with Harry James.

leel that there should be a redress ol 
this grievance. Many of us have la- 
boratory periods which fall on just 
those particular afternoons, and so 
are being deprived by this rather 
short-sighted policy. After all, the 
music collection was originally donat- 
eu to the college for the enjoyment of 
the entire student body, and to restrict 
this library to students in music is a 
violation of the original condition. 
Then too, continuance of this policy 
will undoubtedly kill the small amount 
of interest in classical music that still 

In all fairness, perhaps the music 
department has some better reasons 
for this course, but as yet there has 
been no indication of it. Can this 
wrong be rectified? 

A Student. 

As our guest speaker at convocation 
last week, we were honored Lo hear 
Irom Sumner R. Parker, secretary of 
the Massachusetts National Defense 
Committee, sponsored by the United 
Slates Department of Agriculture. As 
time would not permit a talk covering 
all the minute details of the proposed 
production program, Mr. Paricertouch- 
eU on only the most important phases, 
especially those concerning the farm- 
ers in Massachusetts. 

The goal for the 1942 program calls 
for the largest production in the his- 
tory of American agriculture. This 
is brought about in part by the fact 
that the British Government expects 
tlie United States to supply food for 
one quarter of its forty-million people. 
England's greatest need at the present 
time is an abundance of manufactured 
farm products such as powdered milk, 
butter, cheese and Hour. The people 
over there would have no way to make 
these products if we sent them the 
raw materials, as their manufacturing 
power is greatly reduced by the war 
and its necessities. At the same time 
the people here in this country need 
food, and we want to try to raise the 
nutritional standards of our own 

Perhaps a few figures will bring 
home tlie task before the American 
farmer. Just look at these figures 
and think what they mean. 

The dairy men have been asked to 
increase their production by 125,000, 
000,000 pounds or 7 per cent over 
tliat of last year. The poultrymcn 
are asked to produce 8.7 million dozen 
of eggs. The production of meat in 
the United States is expected to be the 
largest on record, pork alone increas- 
ing 12 per cent to allow the exporting 
of lard and other pork products to the 

Mr. Parker stressed the point that 
the farmer was not being asked to 
raise this extra produce without re- 
ward, any more than the manufac- 
turer is producing other necessities 
without renumeration.

State Prof's Square Dance Team 
Wins Championship in Vermont 

By Dorothy Dunklee i 

"Some people achieve greatness 
while others have greatness thrust 
upon them," is Charles N. Dubois' ex- 
planation of the engraved gold cup 
that is now displayed in his home. 
His present worry is that his reputa- 
tion is gVung to be difficult to live up 

For details of this situation, the 
scene shifts to Mr. Dubois' hometown 
where he spends his summers. It's 
West Newbury, Vermont, a little 
village consisting mostly of a store 
and a few farmhouses, where for a 
number of years old timers and young 
people have formed a square dance 
team to compete at the Fold Festival 
at Goddard College in Plainfield. 

According to Mr. Dubois, he and 
his wife were just interested enough 
to drop in at one of the rehearsals and 
it developed that the team lacked a 
prompter. That's how he got pressed 
into service as prompter for the team. 
"1 wasn't very anxious to call, but 
they knew I used to fiddle for square 
dances when I was a kid in high 
school, and they assumed I knew 
something about it," he explained. 

To make a long story short, the 
team went to Plainfield on the thir- 
teenth of August and won the Gover- 
nor's Cup for top performance in the 
Square Dance Contest, "which was 
very nice indeed," said Mr. Dubois. 

A contest for prompters was held 
in the evening of the same day. "We 
were feeling high after taking the 
Cup and there was nothing to lose, 
so we decided to take a shot at it," 
he said, "although I had learned only 
the calls for the two dances given by 
tne team." 



Contestants included old-timer: 
fiddled as they called, as well as 
"amateurs" with a life-time of » 
ence in calling, but to make a |i 
; tory shorter. Prompter Dubois 
presented with a gold cup giv< 
tile Stephen Dave Press of Brattle. 

About two weekl ago, the cm 
rived in Amherst, its shiny si. 
now suitably engraved. The (, 
nor's Cup won by the team is no 
oisplay in the General Store wi, 
West Newbury. 

"And here's the pay off," continued 
Mr. Dubois. "Not long after the 
Festival was over, a telephone call 
from Montpelier invited our team t.. 
perform at Vermont's Sesquicentes- 
nial Ball. So we put on three dancea 
for the celebrities and the crowd there! 
Now I'm hoping there will be no fur 
ther repercussions or reverberati 
be concluded. 

All of which just goes to prow the 
fallacy of the belief that it tool a 
Massachusetts man to show Vcrmon- 
ters how to square dance, for, in 
truth, that man is still a Vermonter' 


Editor, Collegian, 

It is true that there is much to be 
said against the point system. Natur- 
ally there are mistakes. The system 
is in its experimental stage and revi- 
sions will be needed. It was started 
under the supervision of Don Allan and 
Evie Bergstrom with the idea of 
having two systems of the same kind, 
but one for the men, and one for the 
women. Where is the Senate's plan? 

The point system has two purposes: 
tlie first is to distribute the honor, the 
second to distribute the work. Many- 
times the people nominated are habit- 
ual candidates. If these people were 
limited in the number of offices they 
could hold, nominating committees 
would be stimulated tO think of others 
just as cajiable to fill these positions. 

Also there are certainly more people 
than are recognized now who deserve 
campus honors. The point system 
would bring these people into consider- 
ation when honor is being distributed. 

We feel that there is definite need 
for a change so we should like to give 
the point, system a trial.

presiding. Of those attending, the 
seniors were in the majority, only a 
small delegation from the freshman

were discussed for continuing the 
operations of the club during the 
coming year. It was planned to have 
the meeting on the first and third 
Thursdays of the month. A program

Players Move Scenery 

The presentation of "Twelfth 
Night" will differ from any of the 
other previous presentations in Bowk- 
er in that, despite the eleven scenes 
in the play, there will be but one cur- 
tain drop for a brief intermission. 
Scenery is moved by the players them- 
selves, right before the very eyes of 
the spectators. So skillfully is the 
movement of the scenery interwoven 
into the action that the audience is 
scarcely aware of the change of lo- 
cale. This, believes Director Chekhov, 
testores Shakespeare's original desire, 
to transmit to the audience a transi- 
tion from mood to mood rather than 
from scene to scene. 

It is interesting to note that the 
great majority of the players in the 
company are college graduates. 

There will be a meeting this after- 
noon of all those interested in the 
Hope Congregational Church project 
in the Office of Religious Education 
at 4:00 o'clock. A schedule will be 
planned for each Sunday of the en 
suing year. 

No Leading Players 

Rotation of parts and no leading 
players are the unique features of the 
Chekhov Theater Studio. No actors 
are singled out for permanent leading 
parts but instead the roles are alter- 
nated among the players. 

Under the direction of Ford Rainey, 
a member of the cast and noted fenc- 
er, tlie players are given instructions 
in fencing which leads to two very 
realistic scenes in their presentation 
of "Twelfth Night" instead of the 
usual stereotyped fights seen even in 
some of the better Shakespearean pro- 

The presentation tomorrow night 
promises to be the outstanding drama 
tic production ever presented at Mas? 
aehusetts State College.

tion of this program was ol. taint!

Bramble Stars For Frosh 

Beaien yesterday to the tune of 2-0 
bj a powerful and experienced Willis- 
ton Academy team, State's Frosh 
hooters still have an even break for 
me -season thus far by virtue of an 
uphill :5-2 victory over the Deerfield 
Vademy thirds last Thursday. To 
date the play of Bramble, and Corri- 
uau, has been outstanding. The State 
lme-up against Deerfield: g, Hughes; 
11, Magri; rf, Corriveau; lhb, Geller; 
chb, Bramble; rhb, Dickinson; lo, Gin- 
gras; li. Kaplowitz; cf, Iampietro; ri, 
Zupearo; ro, Yetman. Substitutes: 
lioey, Wilson, Mullaly. Mathy, Adams, 
liobbins, Sidd. Referee, Potter. 

With Brad Crecnc as the individual 
star of the meet, State's harriers drop 
ped their opening race te If, I. T. by 
a 31-24 score at Franklin Park last 
Saturday. Greene, who ran in third 
position for most of the distance, put 
on a beautiful drive down the stretch 
io gain the number one spot 
lead Shaw of M. I. T. 
finish line by 7 1-2 seconi 
ing Shaw came two 
men, Joseph and McGregor. Sopho 
more Earle .Newton, running his first 
varsity race, lived up to expectation by 
being the second State man to finish, 
placing fifth in the race. Completing 
the scoring came (iow of |f, I. T., 
McDonald and Kimball of State, Miller 
of M. I. T., and Caldwell of M. S. C. 
Morrill of State finished in eleventh 
position, less than two minutes behind 
the leader, but just out of the scoring. 
As in previous years, the course at 
Franklin Park proved to be both diffi- 
cult and fatiguing to Derby's hill-and- 
dalers. despite the fact that it lacks a 
hill even resembling Prexy's. This may 
be explained by the fact that the 
State course is run mostly on surfaced 
roads and sidewalks, while tin- course 
at Franklin Park is laid out on the 
spongy turf of a golf course. In ad- 
dition, some of the Statesmen still 
have not reached their usual racing 
condition. However, the race was a 
comparatively fast one for an opener, 
and Greene'f winning time of twenty- 
three minutes, fifteen seconds was one 
of the fastest ever run by a State 
harrier over the rolling hills of Frank- 
lin Park. 

In their next test, the State runners 
will meet W.P.I.. the race being sched- 
uled to end between the halves of 
Saturday's game at Worcester. State's 
harriers have won fourteen of the 
eighteen meets run between these two 
schools since 1922, and Coach Derby- 
is optimistic over the chances of in- 
creasing this percentage Saturday.

A reshuffled Maroon and White line- 
up may make its appearance at Wor- 
cester next Saturday afternoon when 
Coach Hargcsheimcr's team seeks to 
open the second half of its Kail cam- 
paign with a victory over Worcester 
Tech. Displeased with last week's 
performance against the Rhode Island 
Hams, Hargesheimer has been experi- 
menting with several different back- 
field and line combination at practice 
sessions this week. According to 
Coach Hargeaheimer none of the start- 
ing berths have been cinched yet, and 
all positions are open. 

Although the injury jinx caught up 
with State in a big way last week, it 
is hoped that most of the cripples will 
lie recovered and available for action 
Benny Freitas, Stan Salwak, and Gil 
Santin, three of the Maroon and White 
starting hacktield at Kingston, appear 
ready for heavy duty again, although 
guard John McDonough, who injured 
his arm in last week's game clash, is 
still an unknown quantity. 

Coach Hargesheimer is looking for 
no easy victory this week, although 
the Statesmen will go into the game 
as established favorites.

Before turning conquering eyes to 

ward Trinity, the Uaseachuaetts State 

varsity bootOTS chalked up their second 
win by walloping Coast (iuaril, on 
their home field, last Saturday, t<» the 
tune ol 0-1. Revenging the loss in 

the previous game, the Briggsmen 

wasted no time in scoring twice during 
the lit st quarter. The newly replaced 

Callahan and Robert tallied with the 

able assistance of the rest of the line. 
The second period saw one score each 

by Arnold and Mullany, Mullany 

came thru for two more iroals in the 
second half to make State's total of 
six. Coast Gttard*! only score was a 

penalty kick by Vautrain. Capt, 

Krickson's injury caused a rearrange- 
ment of the line, putting Callahan in 
i^ center forward. Kokoski at inside, 
and Ilebert at wing. This combination, 
with Mullany and Arnold, really 
clicked. The defense Slates did their 
usual good job, and it was possible to 
e.ive some of (he lesser experienced 
backs a chance under lire. 

This Saturday the liriggsmen travel 
to Hart lord, to tangle with the Trinity 
squad. Working at the same pace 
that was" shown last week, the States- 
men should more than bold their own.

( lushing edged Stockhridge (5-0 in a 
thrill-packed battle at Ashhurnham, 
Saturday. The home team scored the 
crusher in the third, following an en- 
gineered break when a Stockhridge 
punt was blocked and then retrieved 
by Cushing on the 20 yard line. The 
band of welded men in the forward 
wall, who had previously throttled 
Cushing's "cosmic plunges" at the 
goal line, cracked before the terrific 
blasting of the opponents' rugged 
operators. Kindelien howled through 
for a first down on two successive 
line bucks, and then after a series of 
passes and smashes failed. Fullback 
Kulasinski wheeled through tackle 
COX the game's only score. The con 
Version was wide. 

The lone touchdown was made in 
the third, but the game wasn't won 
until the last whistle blew. Stock- 
bridge's explosive offense had been 

only too ek-ailv demonstrated earlier 
in the game when big Caesar Kuzmiski 
dragged down two of Woynar's rifle 
shots deep in Cushing's territory to 
almost tally. With just yards to go, 
the Blue and White bogged down and 
blew their best scoring opportunities. 
Cushing sensed the ever-present 
threat of these lightening strokes and 
clung on to their lead with increased 
tenacity . The tempo of the game was 
elevated in the fourth period with both 
teams sacrificing everything to gain

The government conference which opens on cam- 
pus tomorrow afternoon offers opportunity to 
students to gain a better understanding of gov- 
ernment and its problems. An outstanding list of" experts in vari- 
ous phases of government work will be here to offer ideas and 
facts to those who wish to learn. There will also be opportunities 
for discussion. 

This subject is particularly important now because of the 
changing process that the government is going through. To col- 
lege students who are notoriously poor newspaper readers, but 
who, nevertheless, are expected to be leaders upon graduation, this 
government conference is something which should not be missed. 

Lord Jeff Amherst, and his lackey, 
Mutt, were sent on a quest by one of 
the British monarchs who had a flair 
for comedy. The object of the quest 
was to find living evidence of the 
height of the ridiculous. 

The strange quest led Mutt and Jeff 
through many lands. For years the 
search was in vain. Our heroes were 
stoned in Istanbul, belabored in Bes- 
sarabia, but with stout hearts and 
stouter backs they continued their 
quest. At one point in their travels, 
they stopped in Damascus, where they 
went into the iron and steel business, 
with Mutt doing the ironing and Jeff 
the stealing. Before long, Mutt and 
Jeff rode the rods out of Damascus, 
and headed for the New World. 

They set sail from Lisbon in a pickle 
boat, a really splendid yacht, much 
loved by barnacles, and leaking in 
every seam. After several months at 
sea the food gave out. Jeff looked at 
Mutt longingly. Mutt looked back at 
Jeff, then looked at the sharks and 
said: 'I'll take my chances with our 
finny friends.' 

Disappointed to see Mutt desert 
him, Jeff resumed his practice of beat- 
ing off the flies with his broken 

One (lay Jeff was attacked by an 
albatross which ate most of his hair. 
Here, the Amherst clip was born. 

Years later. Lord Jeff landed in 
Boston, where he registered and was 
drafted into the armed forces of the 
King. He made a good record in the 
army, shot an Indian. When that was 





by Alice Magui re- 

iver. Lord Jet! came to the Connecti- 
cut Valley, where he operated tin- pin- 
ball concession at Kahar's Tavern, and 
dreamed <>f his hopeless quest. 

But soon it came to pass that a 
scholarly man approached Jeff. The 
stranger was an impressive figure who 
wore a battered cap and dark classes. 
The Dean, as the stranger called him- 
self, impressed Jeff no end with his 
encyclopedic knowledge. The fascina- 
ted Lord gazed at the Dean and re- 
membered a few lines from Goldsmith, 
which ran: 'And still they gazed, and 
still the wonder grew, That one small 
head could carry all he knew.' 

On t7ie Dean's suggestion, Lord 
Jeff founded a college in a drug store. 
The Dean was appointed dean, and 
Jeff favored the institution with his 
name, so that it came to be known as 
Amherst College. 

A century later, another college 
came into being at the otlier end of 
Pleasant Street. Lord Jeff's excelled 
the younger school in athletic contests, 
and even in several quiz programs. 
Apparently Lord Jeff's college was 
superior, but Lord Jeff himself, who 
was really honest despite that Damas- 
cus episode, in time smiled wanly in 
his tomb. He realized at last that he 
had found the object of his quest, the 
height of the ridiculous. 

'How', asked Lord Jeff of a termite, 
'Can my boys hope to conquer those 
others? Why, their back teeth are 
worn down from growling 'St-a-a-ate'. 
It is the height of the ridiculous to 
believe that they can be humbled !' 




HONK! In the middle .if the 
a raucous din breaks the chatt 
the dormitory rooms; pajama< •■ 
uies emerge yawning, some witi 
al rods sticking out in all difec 
some with pins close to their 
and once in a while one of X:. 
true daughters flaunting ni 
ringlets. Down from third, out i 
shower, up from the imoking 
they come. First yields a small 
of fully clad fortunates who 
spent the past minutes discussing t!,. 
evening's fun. As the roll is taken ■,-. 
dazed voice can be heard saying, <;., 

and 1 just dreamed I was ,4u 

to Amherst Week end." 

About 50 coeds appeared at th- 
swimming club last night, attired ii 
the smoothest little sugar bags this 
side of Louis.' Mermaids prat : 
formation swimming and design, amir 
the rush were largely freshmen with 
s< attered upperclassmen in the north 
trnmost portion.

'Twas just the kiss 1 asked you

Stocki.ridge's tight-fagged Foreign 
Legion was out maneuvered and out- 
manned 21 to 7 by the New York 
Aggies at Fanningdale, Saturday. The 
Blue and White chalked up their lone 
marker in the first minute of play 

when Woynar connected on a stinging 
spiral to Kuzmiski for a seventy-yard 
touchdown. Cotdl Ball's 'sling and 
slam" tactics failed to produce there- 
after, and the Bong Islanders roared 
back to take the tussle away from our 
adhesive-bound" aggregation. 

1 racy evened the count for the home 
I, am late iii the first frame by plow- 
ing across after a sustained New Yuri, 
march and then booting the extra 

point Fired by Tracy's tally, the 

New York club unleashed a sizzling 
assault which netted touchdowns in 
the second and fourth periods, to hang 
defeat number two on a crumbling but 

rourageous Stockbridgc crew. 

We lost '•:•'.» and 11 100th '<" of our 
once famous Routing power when Mike 
Woynar and Red Stevens were side 
lined in the second quarter. Mike, 
that chunky aerial specialist with 
more heart than heft, finally sucumbed 

before the garage buttering of the op- 
position when his ankle gave way. 

Stevens, a jarring gent with a pile 
driver complex, also got an over-dose 
of bruises . . . After the Aggies got 
through pounding our squad, very few 

of the boys would qualify for Class 
l-A . . . Pop Barrett, State's movie 
czar, put the clash on celluloid . . . Ev 
Bartlett and Manny Robello witnessed 
the contest, but not merely as guests 
of the management; Manny acted as 
assistant linesman, holding one of the 
sticks, and Ev kept time . . . Our line 
Anally met their match. It wasn't fun 
for the boys, but it was very educa- 
tional to see the Aggies forward wall 
use Lou Little's submarine charge. 


Coach Derby's Cross Country outfit 
were decisively beaten 19-37 by Gard- 
ner High last Wednesday. Only Bib- 
hard, who came in third, and Alden, 
who was ninth, finished in the first ten. 
Larkin, of Gardner, reduced the course 
record by 24 seconds, stopping the

Most brass and reed soloists an 
confronted with a problem that foumJ 
Its roots in the days of King Oliver 
and Teschemacher. The .onflict in a 
solo is between tone and ideas. ■ 
most cases one method of pla> ing tin 
solo is used at the expense of til 
other. "Tone", in a solo, doa BOl 
mean a series of deafening blasti W 
maniacal screeches. The beauty of a 
solo is expressed in its tone. Al 
"idea" is not a nervous confusion f>: 
notes. An "idea" is just what the 
word suggests; it is the thought of I 
solo. Tones require appreciation. 
ideas require understanding. A IW 
artist puts his audience at N 
tries to entertain, whereas an artK 
of ideas keeps his audience on the 
edge of its seat and tries to COiffl 
what the solo means to bin*. ' ""' 
man Hawkins went so far a to 'ail 
a number of his, "What Harlem He* ' 
to Me." 

Columbia recently released a trum 
pet album which differentiates to* 
from ideas perfectly. One of the rec- 
ords is "Dark Town StrutU: ' bali 
featuring Muggsy Spanier 01 >umP l1 
and Red McKenzie on a i 

If McKenzie's solo doesn't lHt»* 
ideas, nothing does. Certaii il

to understand McKenzie, 1

i. : i year. 

this means that $57,5e2.48 were 

lint last year for heating. Killing 

^ inters coldest months, as much as 

'■■- tons aie needed for one day. In 

c ' l, ;i t to this, an August dog day 
calls for the use of approximately onlj 

one and one-half tons. Other uses of 
the 1 S I million pounds of steam pro 
dined by this coal are for e\perinien 
tation in the laboratories, for hot 
water in various buildings, and for 

crockery in Draper Hall. 

The heating plant, itself, consists of 
three boilers of inn horsepower each, 
three generators, which total 1100 kil 
"watts, and a gas plant, which has a 
capacity of 2400 gallons of pentane 

The latter is a gas which is dissolved 
in acetone and stored underground in 
two tanks, each of which has a CS 
pacity of 1200 gallons. The daily con 
sumption of this gas is 15 gallons, or

Derbymen Edge Tech to 
Win at Worcester 27-29 

Bowing to a stronger and more ex- 
perienced team, the M. S. C. Frosh 
yesterday wave way to West Spring- 
feld by a 2-1 score. Two Joes — 
Uagri and Corriveau — supported 
Bucky Iiramble in an attempt to dom- 
'uitc the opposing club. The frosh 
forward line, hindered somewhat by 
ragged passing, continually forced the 
pay ami lampietro managed to seep 
through for one score. This game 
t he frosh a record of two losses 
tg&inst one win, which they hope to 
bring back to an even break in their 
Rial game with Springfield Trade next 

A triple tie amongst the first three 

Statesmen to finish characterized the 
local harrier's 27-29 win over the 
Worcester Tech runners. The race 
was run over Tech's rugged course 
last Saturday between the halves of 
the VV. P. I. game. First in the run 
was Tech's Ken llunt, closely followed 
by Greene, Kimball, and Newton in g 
triple tie. The next State position 
was that of George Caldwell in sev- 
enth. Completing State's live scoring 
men was Fitzpatrick in eleventh fol- 
lowed by McDonald and Morrill in suc- 
ceeding positions. 

Three meets remain for the h ill-arid 
r'alcrs, a'll within the next ten days. 
'today, Springfield Collage brings both 
varsity and freshman teams to the 
local course for what should be a close 
meet. Next Tuesday, Coast Guard 
will play host to eight of the best 
teams in the Connecticut Valley, while 

on November tenth the club will jour- 
ney to Boston for the \. K. Intel

to rib the head football couch Satunlav 

at supper by saying, "Yep, I heard

However, it looked good to ggg ;i

added pep and collegiate appeal to the 
occasion. Incidentally, the 'lech gnat

QUIET, Occasionally it becomes the painful duty of a college 

MO\ S AND editor to retrogress to the grade school era and ser- 
GIRLS nioinze. An occasion for this has arisen. Good- 

ell Library, aa most people know, is where we keep our books, our 
librarian, and where we should study. Lately it has been nearly 
impossible to do the last. Instead of quiet conducive to study, 
most of the time there is a sewing circle buzz. Frequently dis- 
turbances have occured which one would not suspect of men and 
women over the mental age of 12. 

In fact, conditions have become so bad that students are act- 
ually complaining that they cannot study in the reading rooms. 
It ia granted that most of the noise is not premeditated interfer- 
ence with the peace of others, but nevertheless the reading rooms 
of doouell are not places for social gatherings. 

This is offered as a reminder to all to be a little more consider- 
ate. A time and a place for everything, and Goodell Library is 
not the place for noise.

As the result of losing to Amherst, 
the football team is to be punished by 
being sent to Brooklyn this Saturday. 
We have here a preview of the sights 
awaiting the footballers.

in Times Square. She will be wearing 
a house coat and pajamas, and will 
occasionally throw herself in front of 
a speeding taxi in order to attract

back and forth on the shuttle train. 
'The only thing wrong with this past-

mother, a former school teacher, 
stands beneath the Statue Of Liberty 
and says: 'Yes, Liberty, you may.' 

The New York mayoralty campaign 
may cause a little dissension among 
the members of the team. Kollie Col- 
lela states that he has no racial pre- 
judice in favor of LaGuardia. 'I would 
vote for him even if his name was 
Salvatore,' says Kollie. 

Local rooters may obtain Brooklyn 
passports from State Department offi- 
cials in the Memorial Hall on Thurs- 
day, from two until four-thirty. 

The team will work out on the Astor 
Roof by blocking and tackling potted 
plants. On Saturday night, the plants

As a result of their fine work at an-

of confused appraisal he said: '1 
can't find anything here. You seem to 
have forgotten something. Go bade 
home and bring your muscles with you 
the next time you come down. You 
might also have your appendix re- 
moved. Tell the surgeon to put you 
in a jar of alcohol, and have him send 
the appendix to us.' 

The chemistry department, through 
the ellorts of Mrs. Ganh, has taken 
on two new lab assistants. They are 
Mrs. Cc. and Mrs. Gms. Mrs. Cc is 
a liquid person, but Mrs. tims is really 
solid. The two are well-known to all 
students of chemistry.

The touchdown duet — Woynar to 
Kuziniski — racked up the first score- 
in the initial frame when Kuzmiski 
pulled in Woynar's 20 yard strike at 
mid-field and romped the remaining 
distance unmolested. The second 
tuochdown came right on the 
heels of the first. Monson set the 
stage, following the Stockbridge 
kick-off, when they angled a poor 
punt out on their own twenty-six set. 
Stockbridge! seemingly unhampered 

by a mess of major mishaps, turned 
loose a back field array of speed-mer- 
chants and slam-bang technicians who 
generated the power necessary to set

Evidently Amherst week end brings 
back two things — the rain and the 
grade. The grade are always welcome, 
even with their critical suggestion. It 
was suggested by an alumnus toil 
week end, that it was about time \\< 
nave a few colored musicians a chanci. 
Well, it is about time. Suppose 01 
take a look at three of the best Duki 
Ellington, Johnny Hodges, and I, ion. 

The Duke is not only the most ma- 
ture of colored band leaders but alto 
one of the foremost musicians. In fact, 
he has been criticized by many for be- 
ing too advanced. But don't believe it 
The opinion of the dancing public i- 
no criterion of a good musician. It 
would be futile to try to suggest the 
Duke's best records. Listen to any. 

Johnny Hodges has done sonic ai 
ranging works for Mr. Ellington. Sp 
cial attention should be paid to "Wan 
Valley" by the Ellington band, tVa 
turing Johnnie on tenor. Johnnie 11 
one of the few tone artists whom a' 
idea zealot can listen to, probably l>< 
cause he is an expert technician. 

Hodges always reminds us of I lamp 
ton because of two records that they 
made together. "You're My Ideal" an ! 
"The Sunny Side of the Street," bett 
Victor records, are examples of m 
best of both men. Hampton plays lb* 
vibraphone and sings. Hod 
plays. Observe the technique WOT 
which Johnnie plaintively backs up 
Lionel on these two records. Hampttt 
the vagabond musician, doc- DOM '" 
hi-' best "vibe" work on two otlitr 
records by Victor with ftweinsting 
titles — "Livery Stable Bwe " " : 
'"Pig Foot Sonata." 

The team shook loose two more men 
in the third period to complete Un- 
root. Hobby Brennan, 160 pound 
"scat", l>r< light the count to IS to (I 
when he K imp red over from the two- 
yard line after Kuziniski was bumpe ! 
out nt that point on a beautifully ex- 
ecuted end-around. Only minutes later. 
Brennan, pitching from the forty-flvi; 
yard stripe, pulled tin- String .m a 
soft spiral to Kuzmiski who went ovei 
for the final scon-. 

Mike Woynar could have used a 
bicycle. He hobbled in for each eon 
version attempt and was shoved hi the 
breach long enough to complete om 
for one when he ferried the scoring 
pass to Kuzmiski in the first frame. 
Stockbridge's own "Senator" Glass put 
on a COntortionisI act for the benefit 

of the cheering section, in theory has 

the cheering squad, actually he's in 
heavy competition with the gridder- 
who do not get the studos' undivided 

attention any more. You can add 

• lay! Southard to the growing injured 

list, kuzmiski ran his individual 
Scoring honors to twenty-four points 
when he chalked up two scores.

urrent governmental problems held 
neie last Friday and Saturday. 

Dr. Stephens concerned himself with 
the elicit of the defense program up 

on the whole matter of selection of 
P . I sound. He indicated that the fed- 
eral service is expanding rapidly and 

that this expansion is creating impacts 
which are affecting the whole plan ol 

governmental organization. If present 

plan are continued, he said, several 

hundred thousand additional employes 

will have to he recruited ill the next 
two years. 

'Hie civil service official then told 
nis audience of governmental offi 
dais, plain citizens, and students of 
some of thi' ways in which this impact 
of personnel selection has affected 
governmental procedures. There is a 
necessity at present, he said, for n-- 

cruitiiig pet sons into the federal serv- 
ice at a rate 15 times greater than 
ever during normal times. This pres- 
sure has forced the Civil Service com- 
mission to streamline its procedures

A NOTED The coming of the Rev. Gerald Walsh of Fordham 
\ 181T0K University to this campus the week alter Thanks- 
giving is an important event in the chronology of 
this college year. Father U alsh, whose visit is being sponsored 
oy toe ui vision of Liberal Arts, is a student of medieval philosophy 
and a scholar ol proportions almost incredible to the average col- 
lege student. 

His being graduated from Oxford and his ability to speak and 
write several foreign languages makes him unusual for us. That 
he can fill a gap in our acatiemic program makes him important 
to us. 

For some time, particularly since the A. B. degree has been 
awarded, Massachusetts State College has needed supplement to 
its overworked philosophy department. A thorough study of the 
earlier pnilosopnies has been impossible. An important element 
in the academic diet is lacking, with a resulting malnutrition in 
the graduate. 

The brief survey Father Walsh will offer in his three day 
visit, November 27. 28. and 29, will be an opportunity for all 
stuuents to improve their knowledge of the medieval period. This 
is important, not only to those who are studying philosophy, but 
also to those who are interested in history, literature, languages, 
the sciences, and, in fact, every other subject which has a lengthy 
historical background. 

Students here are sometimes reluctant to attend anything 
that tends to be intellectual, even classes. However, the "brief 
course" to be given by the Rev. Gerald Walsh is too good an op- 
portunity for anyone to miss. 

Our column this week smacks faint- 
ly of "Ten Nights in a Barroom", but 
we feel we should say something on 
temperance. While you are reading 
it you might have your room mate 
sing, "Hearts and Flowers", in a qua- 
vering tenor voice. Our intention is 
clearly to denounce John barleycorn, 
and if we contrive to save any lost 
souls from the evils of alcohol, we ex- 
pect to he rewarded with a drink. 

• * a 

'There once was a man from Phi 

Who inclined at times to a swig; 
His tongue was all hair, 
His top-knot was bare, 
So he used the tongue as a wig.' 
'Oh. what a very fine tune. 

Sing us another one soon.'

The Hurt Show was mildly disturbed 
by the actions of inebriates, we heard, 
or imagined. A quartet of men given 
to revelrye and dronklenesse percolat- 
ed willy-nilly among the ferns and 
grasses. When the prizes were award- 
ed we found that one of our friends' 
noses hail won first prize in the hot 
house beet exhibit. Another man, by 
virtue of his vulk, was named the best 
Virginia Creeper in the Show. The 
third was given a blue ribbon for the 
best Oriental plant by a near-sighte:l 
judge. The fourth man was ejected 
unceremoniously because his breath 
was wilting all the gardenias. 

♦ ♦ * 

While walking down Pleasant 
Street last week, Mrs. Merzack was 
suddenly struck drunk. She went into 
the package store, and emerged carry- 

ing a large package and a small one. 
She was being carried by Mrs. Ganh 
who was standing on Levi Pulsen's 
shoulders. A timid voice was hear... 
from Levi's overcoat pocket, then 
Mrs. Pu'lsen peeped out and asked: 

"What town is this?' 

a a * 

As the revelers were sprinting 
down Main Street Levi was stopped by 
a red light, which turned out to be 
an Amherst student's nose. The stu- 
dent had been draining the alcohol 
from an automobile radiator, purely 

for medicinal purposes, as he said.

Now we have a little verse taken

Oh, what a very fine tune.

Recent reports from the college dining 
hall reveal a stupendous loss of knives, 
forks, and spoons since the opening of 
college. It seems that many boarders 
borrow silverware for home use and then 
throw it away with the box the cake arrived in or tuck it away in 
an isolated corner to be forgotten. 

Other years there have been small losses and the dining hall 
management could economize someplace and purchase replace- 
ments. This year, there are priorities, and such. (Quantities of 
knives, forks, and spoons, are not to he had at any cost. 

It all adds Up that unless .some of the missing utensils are re- 
turned and losses stop, lingers will be the style.

Went worth Institute's rule-COnscioui 

bookworms turned with startling sud 
denness in the last quarter) but not 
soon enough to overcome the U-lL 

victory margin rolled ui> by Coach 
Ball's precision machine in a history 
repeating thriller Friday. 

Stoekbridge, who always opens last 

shredded Wentworth's line and pushed 

across a touchdown while the thud oi 
the kick-off was still echoing in tin 
stadium. The Boston team receive 
a boomi&g keep deep in their territory 
and immediately lost it in an extreme 
ly poor punt to their twelve-yard line. 
The Blue and White put their head 
down and blasted a path a few yard. 
at a time until Stevens burst through 
center for the initial score. 

Before the quarter was over W'ent- 
worth bad drawn to within one point 
of the home forces. The Boston boys 
gained possession of the pigskin with- 
in striking distance of the goal when 
Squires, left end, knifed through to 
block Kuzmiski's punt on our thirty. 
Wentwoith, failing to gain, kicked a 
low one that bounced on the seventh 
and hobbled goaldward only to play 
possum on the one-foot line. Caesar's 
second try for a fair punt was again 
rudely prevented, when the whole 
Wentwoith line submerged him, do 
fleeting the pigskin which was downed 
by the visitors on our twenty. De« 
lorey then passed to Squires in the flat 
for their first tally. Their try for the 
bonus point was blocked. 

The game was won in the second 
quarter. Delorey fumbled one ot Kuz- 
miski's toweling kicks on his eight, 
and Perry, down under the play made 
a swan-uive recovery for the Blue ami 
White. Wentworth held, though, ami 
kicked to the thirty. Undaunted by 
the added yardage, Woynar riileu 
Boogidy Woogidy's pelt to Kuzmiski 
for the game-deciding touchdown and 
to root Wentworth out of the ranks of 
the undefeated. 

Wentworth, shackled by the stingy 
Stoekbridge squad throughout most ot 
the game, unfurled a baffling barrage 
of passes in the fourth quarter, thai 
carried them ninety-seven yards to a 
last-minute tally. 

Caesar, who does everything but 
carry the water pail, put plenty of 
English on a fifty-yard boot in the 
third period to nick the coffin corner 
at the two-yard mark. Touch Downey, 
the galvanized kid, worked with re- 
lentless determination to highlight the 
bruising play of the forward string. 
Southard got in, but only to relieve 
starter Dougherty for a few minutes. 
Amherst High's cleaters sat in on the 
contest and gave two former local 
i-tars, Woynar and Kuzmiski, individ- 
ual cheers. The team has rung up 
sixty points so far this year to the 
opposition's thirty-nine, for an aver- 
age of twelve points per contest to the 
opponent's eight.

Benny Freitas, Hard Uunning Back 

Speed versus power, with speeu 
holding the upper hand, was the pic- 
ture at Brooklyn last Saturday as 
the Statesmen outseored Brooklyn 
College S3-19. Holding a very definite 
weight advantage, the Kingsmen 
steamrollered their way to three 
touchdowns in the progress of the 
Kama, but could offer nothing to com- 
pare with the devastating touchdown 
sprints of State backs, Salway, Frei- 
tas, and' Seery. Stan Salwak, whose 
brilliant punt returns have been a 
feature of every State game this sea 
son, led the scoring with twelve 
points. In the first period, he went 
over from the six yard line after his 
own pass interception on the Brooklyn 
four had set the stage for State's 
fiist and only real touchdown drive, 
and in the third period he took a pass 
from Seery and dodged '>i» yards down 
the field f' r another tally. 

Work horse Ben Freitas was seem I 
man in the Slate scoring with eight 
points t'» his credit. Benny was just 
as big as those Brooklyn boys ami 
considerably faster. His speed an i 
shiftiness really urprised them when 
he eiii loose around end and went 
71 yards for a touchdown in the thirl 
period. He was also successful in 
hooting two extra points during the 

game. The remainder of State's points 
were added by triple-threat John 
Seery, guard Red Warner, and quar- 
terback Matty Ryan. Seery 's score, 
which also came in the third period, 
was on a run of G.'i yards with the 
aid of some beautiful down-field 
blocking by the Hargesheimer forward 
wall. To "old reliable" Captain John 
Brady, who played tin- entire game 
without relief, must go sonic of the 
credit for Warner's tally in the finai 

quarter. It was he who crashed 

through and blocked the punt which 
was gathered in and carried across 
the goal line by Warner for the final 
touchdown of the game, Kyan con- 
verted tins point on an end run from 

Tied 0-C, at the half, it was a|ipar 
ently anybody's ball game, with the 
Kingsmen having the- edge in power. 
'I hey rolled up a total of fourteen 
first downs during the game as com 
pared to four for the Statesmen. 

However the three quick tallys which 
State produced in that third quarte 

appad the spirit of the hefty Brook 
lynites and found them yielding an 
other score in the final period, with 
M. S. ( ., threatening dangerously i . 
add yet another when the game end 


in both of the previous names parti 
cipatad in by the senior members of 
i he Hargesheimer eleven, and these 
hoys will tie out there to close their 
college football careers in a blaze of 
glory by avenging former humilia- 
tion at the hands of the Jumbo team. 
And, finally, the If, s. c. footballers, 

under the new regime have gained an 
even break l'oi the season thus far, 
and they do not intend to sink In low 
that .500 mark Saturday. 

On the other hand we find a Tufts 

eleven which will be ready to go all 

nut in order to notch up one more 
ictory over the Statesman. The .Jum- 

bOS have been only an average team 
lo date, and they too will be gunning 
to keej) their season's record at bet- 
ler than an even break as they have 
won four games and lost three so far. 
The State line-up which will face 
the Manly coached team will be com- 
posed predominantly of seniors, all 

of whom have been turning in stand- 
DUl performances this year. At center 
will he Captain John Brady, one of 
the few real sixty minute men on the 
team, whose spirit and dependability 
have been a real source of inspiration 
to the team. That almost inseparable 
pair of pachyderms, Benny Freitas 
and Carl Wormo, will be in their fa- 
miliar posts at fullback and left 

tackle respectively, and both of these 

men who have been capable and con- 
sistent performers throughout the 

past three seasons will be trying to 
make their last appearance their best 
one. Big Jim Bullock will probably get 
the starting call at cpiartorback, and 
can be eounted on to fill this position 
capably. At right half will be John 
Seery, a triple threat man who may 
prove to be the outstanding back on 
the field. George Kimball at left end 
and Jim Gilman at right tackle com- 
plete the list of seniors who will 
probably start. 

Latest, reports indicate that both 

(earns will reach a physical peak | 
well as a mental one for this game. 
The Statesmen came through the 
Brooklyn fray with no new injuries, 
and John McDonough, missing from 
both of the last two encounters, should 

be ready (<• return to his position at 
left guard. Coach Lew Manly has 
had his Jumbo squad working over- 
time this week and reports no injuries. 


1941 Soccor Team Finishes Outstanding Season, with Four

In what was one of the best sea 
sons since the undefeated team of

The second contest came with the 
University of Connecticut, and this 
became the Waterloo when fur the

custom of Memorial Convocations,

The program was upend in Bowker

that grace the front of Memorial Hall: 

"We will keep faith with you who lie 
asleep." After the Opening exercises, 
Mr. Alviani led the group in singing 
some of the popular songs of the 
Civil War and World War 1 eras. At 
the conclusion of the singing the 

classes, lead by our French refugee 

twins, Alain and Cilles de Deiris, 
marched an toss camus to the Memorial 
Building, carrying the memorial 
wreath. At Memorial Hall, Dean 
Machnier accepted the wreath for

Music Department Explains Policy of 
Carnegie Music Room For Reply to Letter 

The music department desires to 
explain its new policy in the admin- 
istration of the music room, lest the 
recent letter of a student to the Col 

legian be misinterpreted. As part ol 

an educational institution, the depart- 
ment feels it their duty to create 
new listeners, and they feel further 
that students of music should receive 
first consideration in use of the room. 
In this respect, it is interesting to nott 
that by actual count only a smal 

percentage of the general student 
body, as contrasted with students o! 
music, makes use of tin- facilities 

To accomplish the aim of the Car- 
negie collection, then, it has been 
found necessary to restrict the use o! 
the music room and facilities. This 
was forced upon them by lack of

That everyone cannot be pleased in a large un- 
dertaking Is a well known fact, but in an im- 
portant undertaking like the first community 
chest drive here, there should be an effort to have as few as pos- 
sible dissenters. 

There are few students who will not agree that they can and 
should contribute to charity. The college student should and prob- 
ably does realize his responsbility to help others. At the same time, 
the college student is more apt to be a "doubting Thomas" as to 
the ultimate destination of his contribution. 

In a chest drive it is partcularly important to attempt to sat- 
isfy all. For in contributing, those who strongly oppose any one 
recipient of the chest fund will be likely to diminish their con- 
tribution. To safeguard the other charities, the community chest 
committee should in the next week make clear why they have 
made their allotments and where each student dollar will help so 
that the drive will go over the top. 


At last convocation which was in observance of 
national education week, the college administra- 
tion had a prominent educator for a speaker. To 
provide convenience for the faculty to come and listen to the 
speaker, some thirty or forty chairs were provided on the stage. 
Five members of Ihe faculty and the president were on the stage. 
As an undergraduate paper ,ve do not attempt to reprimand the 
faculty for not attending. Why they did not attend is difficult to 
say. Perhaps they like to get their Collegian at 11:30, perhaps 
they like an early luncheon, perhaps they have advance informa- 
tion on the speaker, or perhaps, the last time, they were all busy 

preparing pre-Thanksgiving hour exams. 

However, something ought to be done about the great, gaping, 
cavernous space on the stage. We have complained about student 
conduct at convocation. It creates a bad Impression also for the 
BCOTC or more of faculty chairs to be vacant and the whole stage 
open behind our guest for the campus ghosts to prowl. 

Nobody was very surprised to bavi 
Thanksgiving turn up last Thursday. 
Sinco F.D.R. rode iii mi tin- bier of 
the Republican party anything can 
happen. We remember bavins; heard 
Dave Duncan, Sage of Thatcher, once 
suggest that Christmas be celebrated 
on the Fourth of July, so as to pie- 
elude Yuletide auto accidents caused 
by icy roads. Who knows, tomorrow 
may be Easter. 

However, it was really Thanksgiv- 
ing, and not Washington's Birthday 
last Thursday, and it is fitting to note 
what various and sundry personage* 
are thankful for: 

Coach llargesheimer: for Conn. U., 
Worcester Tech, and Brooklyn Col- 

Dave the Cleaner: for the fact that 
some people still believe that cleanli- 
ness is next to godliness. 

Fran Kiel: for the best first base 
coach in baseball. 

Everybody: for having such a 

Splendid column to read each week. 

Harry Sloper and Dave Holmes: For 
Wildroot Hair Tonic. 

Hob Englehard: for moustache 

John McDonough: for Community

Dear Editor: 

As Dean Ganders said at the lag 
convocation, our task at the pi 
time is to strengthen American de- 
mocracy, not only for defense in th< 
present war, but for victory. With 
much effort bent here on this eampu 
on the question of what we can . 
help, it would seem that the Com- 
munity Chest Drive would be an im- 
mediate solution to the problem. 

A consideration of the OSes to 
which the money is to be put should 
arouse the desire in each one of us to 
do our part in this drive which i , in 
reality, a step in -strengthening 
American democracy. 

Since the committee has arranged 
to meet the convenience of even thou 
who would make the installments, am 
dollar from each student does not 
seem an unreasonable stipulation.

Hut some evening when you're 
home — lonesome, yearning for some- 
thing sweet, try the good old fashioned 
art of making fudge. 

To make butternrt fudge one needs 
three things: namely- butternuts, an 
intense desire for their meat, and 
■teady nerves. 

I have read that -landing the 
choice morsel on end facilitates the 
operation of cracking; however, this 
is a debatable question, U it takes no 
leas than six st likes before cracking 
the outer surface 

One should commence the operation 
by gently tapping the shell with the 
sledge hammer, and then gradually 

increasing the pressure of the blows 
— this is the natural procedure, after 
hitting the thumb and forefinger fre- 

Following these preliminary mo- 
tions comes the climax when, with one, 
glorious bang, the fanatic — for such 
he is at this point — lets fall the ham- 
mer on the nut. The nut, with a joy- 
ous bound at its new-found freedom, 
dashes off the stove, through space 
and across the floor to the farthest 
table leg. 

While wandering on one's knees 
searching for the little devil !**!!**! 
. . . this also serves as an incentive to 
washing, but not waxing the floor. 
Hut oh, the glory of the chase as you 
skip and slide over the highly polished 
linoleum! Ami then in a breath of 
ecstasy you spy the down-turned shell 
to find it — empty. 

But when, hours later, one eats the 
fudge, he will agree, while retrieving 
Infinitesimal pieces of shell from his 
mouth that, "It's all that it's cracked 
up to be." 

It is estimated that at least half th< 
nearly 1,500,000 youths in America 
colleges are working to help pay their 
expenses, while 20 per cent are paying 
all their costs. 

To the Editor of the Massachum <L$ 
Collegian : 

According to the last issue of the 
Collegian a community chest drive 
will be held here on campus during 
the week of December 4. A com- 
munity chest is an excellent idea, and 
I have advocated it for some tin:e. It 
will save time and bother, both for 
those running our charity drives and 
for the student body as a whole. But 
there are some things about this drive 
that I absolutely do not agree with. 

The first and by far the most im- 
portant disagreement that I have is 
the allocation or misallocation of 
funds. Why have $500 been allotted 
to the World Student Service Fund? 
That $500 combined with the $260 for 
a refugee student makes a grand total 
of $750 or one half the total amount 
to be raised by the drive being sent 
out of this country. That is certainly 
all out of proportion to the type of 
campus that we have here. 

There are a good many students 
who did not come back to this college 
for financial reasons just during this 
last fall and yet someone has the im- 
pertinence to ask us to contribute 
such an amount of money to a foreign 
charity. Has the committee for the 
drive never heard the old maxim, 
"charity begins at home"? 

Now let us turn to the March of 
Dimes and ask why so little is lung 
given to such a worthy charity? We 
should give at least a dime each, and 
that would amount to about |150. 

It seems to me that these funds 
which, we, as students are asked & 
contribute to are being allocate I with- 
out any thought as to how ti 
dents feel about having their money 
sent abroad. The committee has sug- 
gested that the students could specify 
to what charity his money woald g 1 '- 
but how .is that going to work when 
a certain percentage or amount is to 
be alloted to each charity? 

There are babies in New York that 
need milk. There are. many peoi"* 
in the United States that need clothes. 
There are children here that need ed- 
ucation. There are a greit many 
people that need medical attention. 
Why, then, should we send *uch » 
large amount of money to do the*' 
things for students in Eurpe «" d 
China? H

Paul Green s 'House ot 
Connelly' Coming Here 

Paul Green'l play of the South, 
The ffoitM of ('until llj/, will be pre- 
sented here at the Social Union pro- 
gram on December 6. The drama 
will be given by the newly organized 
Carolina Playmakers' Repertory 
Touring Company, of the University 
of South Carolina. It gives the most 
talented Playmakers an opportunity 
to get valuable experience on the road. 
The company is appearing in thirteen 
states this fall under the management 
of the Redpath Bureau. 

The majority of the actors are 
natives of the South, actors who 
know the customs and manners of the 
peple about whom the play is written. 
Graduate Playmakers dominate the 
cast, many of whom have done profes- 
sional work in New York and else- 

When the Playmakers go on the 
road they carry along everything 
necessary for a finished production. 
The top of their showbus is fitted to 
carry three complete sets of scenery, 
built in their own scene shop and 
specially designed to occupy a mini- 
mum of space. They carry enough 
lighting equipment to transform al- 
most any large room into a modern 
theatre. They have played on such 
deluxe stages as that of the Yale Uni- 
versity Theatre. They have also per- 
formed on the platforms of country 
high schools. 

Like the veteran troupers that they 
are, the Playmakers have never missed 
a scheduled engagement. They have 
plowed through the mire of unpaved 
country roads, through high-piled 
snow. They have even crashed 
through a highway guard-rail to hang 
precariously over a mountain preci- 
pice. Rut they have held fast to the 
tradition that the show must go on. 

As a repertory group, everyone co- 
operates. There is no suggestion of a 
star system. All the members of the 
company serve as crew. They load, 
unload, and set up their scenery,

The Ethan Allen-less Green Moun- 
tain boys of Vermont Junior College, 
a rollicking rabble of gaudy-barged 
huskies, failed to faze Generalissimo 
Ball's sod trodders Friday, Nov. 14th, 
as the Blue and White held the fort 
with a duly earned 7 to triumph. 
The seniors shone in this gem of a 
game that drew the curtain on the '41 
football follies, but three freshmen 
got the curtain call. "Chuck" Tryon, 
who personally contributed the third- 
period touchdown, ruddy "Red" Stev- 
ens, who continually bulldozed through 
the mound of linemen, and Bobby 
Hrcnnen, who slithered around the 
Vermont vigilance committee await- 
ing him across "No-man's Land", ran 
away with most of the honors and all 
of the glory. 

The telling tally came after forty 
minutes of humdrum football had 
been unfolded before the sizable home 
crowd. The junior collegians sat them- 
selves back on their respective heels 
when a fellow member partially 
blocked a quacky quick-kick that car- 
ried only to the thirty-three yard 
mark. Stockbridge assumed posses- 
sion there and went on to pay dirt by 
virtue of four consecutive shots at 
the line. "Chuck" Tryon ignited the 
dormant attack by wading through 
tackle for twelve yards. Vermont then 
held momentarily when a line-buck 
netted us only one yard. Stevens paced 
off fifteen more by breaking through 
center and spilling the secondary' de- 
fense until dumped on the six. The 
pay-off play followed Stevens' bit of 
scintillating stomping. Tryon made 
the kill when he crashed through from 
the six and just managed to bend the

zero stripe before the Vermont back- 
field quartet sat on him. The bonus 
point was collected with a nearly per- 
fect placement. 

Captain "Touch" Downey and his 
raft of scrappy seniors were out to 
make their last game another "Water- 
loo," but they seemed doomed to dis- 
appointment as an equally earnest 
Vermont eleven played them to a 
standstill in the first half. The ever 
reliable "touchdown twosome", Woy- 
nar and Kuzmiski, could not find the 
range, and the once devastating over- 
land trusts were inevitably hurled 
back by the stubborn Vennontcrs. But 
while the offense was stifled in the 
opening half, the defense was terrific. 
Host Downey and company put the 
damper on the visitors' festive spirits 
by firmly insisting that the rambunc- 
tious cleaters stay on their side of the 
scrimmage line. 

That was the first half. The second 
portion was like the second feature at 
a flicker factory — absolutely new and 
different. Stockbridge continued to 
turn on the power with ever mounting 
savagery until the incessant pounding 
finally crumbled the stonewall de- 
fenses thrown up by the opponents 
and the Blue and White poured 
through to score. 

The fourth quarter found Stock- 
bridge again hogging the hide. The 
gang had bowled their way to the 
twelve before time rang out.

General rules will continue the same 
with the eligibility regulations as the 

most important. 

first few days have been taken up en- 
tirely with scrimmage. Informal 
teams have been picked by chance with 

veterans and nea material mixed in- 

doscriminatcly. With such a large 
group < oach Hargesheimer has felt 
this the only possible way to effect 

the elimination process. Having only 
"in' floor available has also been a 

hindrance with such a large squad, 

Tlie gYoup has now been limited to 
ibirtv live with a f, na | cut due this 
afternoon. This hist reduction will re- 
duce thi' squad to about twenty two 
which is the number which will be 
carried through the season. 

That a lot of work Is In store during 
the next few da\s can easily be seen 
from observing that the first, game 
is two weeks from tomorrow night 
After today's final cut, there remains 
just a dozen practice sessions to gel a 
team into shape. All positions ate of 
COUrse Still wide open but there is a 
goodly nucleus of veterans on hand to 
light for those Starting berths. In 
addition to Captain TriggS, returning 
guards include Bubriaki and Podolak, 
both of whom were regular starters 
last year. Forwards returning num- 
ber Frodyma, .Maloy, Kcllcy and 
Sparks. Ted Ilokina, last year's high 
scorer, is out seeking to hang onto the 
center spot. Included also in the ran 
didates several hard playing sopho- 
mores who held down first string jobs 
on last year's freshman team. Aiding 

Coach Hargesheimer with thaadmlnls

ous KO's to key men — a team that 
could remain cool during the beat of 
battle and play to win when the chips 
were down. 

This column has been cluttered with 
the Woyners, Kuzmiskis, Brcnnans, 
Tryons, and Stevenses — the men who 
did the spectacular and who paced the 
way to glory, but now we wish to 
doff the derby to that just-as-essential 
bunch that dealt it out in the forward 
wall, and to the boys who saw it all 
from the bench. 

The linemen are the fellows who 
got the heels in the face and the 
konks on the head and who carried 
out their assignments with methodical 
regularity, while the crowd followed 
the ball. Let's not forget Southard, 
Teittinen, Perry, Bak, Little, Gibbs, 
and Downey. They helped make up 

that great eleven. Along the side- 
lines, huddled on the benches, was an- 
other great gang — the subs — the boys 
who played that forty minutes every 
game, who suffered as severely in de- 
feat, and who reveled as completely 
in victory as the ones who milled on 
the meadow, They may have lacked 
physique or hair-triguer coordination, 
but they were with the best in spirit j 
Their roll-call read.-: Helmont, Danck- 
ert, Kentfield, Mellas, Scott, Worrell, 
Gaskey, Carleton, Garden, Hartosik, 
Hardy, Going, Furhurne, Dougherty, 
Williams, Hus-ey, Iinehrick, Wade, 
Gary, and Puehalski. 

Then there's the group that were 
forced out of the fray for good and 
followed the game from the bleachers. 
They had everything but Lady Luck 
on their side. Those who made the 
"out-for-keeps" list were Hunter, Bc- 
bello, Bartlett, and Nelson. 

The Blue and White rolled up o? 
points to their opponents' 39. Kuz- 
miski was high man in the scoring 
department with five touchilowns in 
six games, and his former Amherst 
team-mate, Woynar, made the record 
books by toeing seven conversions in 
nine tries.

Among our correspondence we find 
a letter from a lady of Uutte, Mon-

Friday night, a fashion show will 
be held in the bowling alleys at Me- 
morial Hall. Mrs. Ganh, dressed as 
a tea pot, will pour the ladies into 
their gowns. 

Mrs. Mer/.ack, dressed in a cheese- 
cloth gown and high buttoned shoes, 
will give a bowling exhibition, wing 
Mrs. Pulscii for a ball. Naturally, 
Mrs. Pulsen will end up in the gutter 
because water seeks its own level. 

Levi I'ulsen will be the only male 
present. He caught his hand in the 
cokoe machine when he mistook his 
fingers for five pennies, and cram- 
med them into the slot. The Amherst

()\ ER THE The opening <>t' the first annual community chest 
TOI' drive this morning offers a challenge to each State 

college student. The student committee has set a 
goal. Whether that goal will be reached and surpassed depends 
on you. 

The chest drive is tt co-operative affair; something for every- 
one to throw his weight and energy and money behind. It is not 
the committee's campaign. There should be here the same pride 
in a community undertaking that each town and city takes in 
pushing its charity drive over the l<'p- 

A thermometer has been placed in front of the administration 
building to indicate the progress of the drive. Let's shoot the 
mercury over the top by Tuesday. 


ladies' auxiliary (diesel and sail) has 
been called oil', because the notorious 
card -harp, Faro Ganh, pulled a der- 
ringer on her partner when the latter 
trumped Faro's third ace of hearts in 
the same hand. 

As an added inducement for the 
lovelies to attend Convocation, Lady 
Ester I'ulsen, originator of the 'Even- 
ing in Brooklyn' cosmetics, is giving 
away a twelve-ounce bottle of 'Lady 
Ester'.- Beetle Cream'. Lady Ester 
say.-: it makes my puss feel swell.' 

Pierre Gildo Santin, noted M.S.C. 
beauty expert, is giving facials v.ith 
boxing gloves in the Stockbridge 
elevator, as long as Ins strength lasts. 
Pierre says: 'Come into my elevator 
and get a lift.' 

The conference will end on Satur- 
day night with a dance at the Aggie 
Casino, (Drill Hall). Music will be 
furnished by the king of swing, 
Tarzan 0_uinn and his Orangutans. 
Mrs. Ganh invites all State men to 
form a staggering line on her right. 

The basketball team began with 
the laying of the floor. Captain 
Triggs, who was preooccupied in 
swishing in long shots from the cav- 
alry field with monotonous regular- 
ity, was accidentally boarded up. He 
emerged some hours later muttering: 
'That was a Nastri trick.'

Butterfield Hi 


1'eai Editor, 

No intelligent, alert coed could pog, 
si lily have read a certain article on 
tlie front page of the Springfield | ,,. 
urn of December first without being 
duly indignant. This article concerns 
thi meeting of the New England Col- 
lege Hand Association at St. Ans. 
at which the subject of girls as bast 
drummers was discussed. 

r lhe article .-tates that "A Massa- 
chusetts State College student .-aid 
that gals couldn't do I* good job an> 

this boy and those whom he is p 
resenting seem to be clinging to tin- 
idea that a woman's place is in the 
home. Hasn't anybody told these boys 
that this idea disappeared with the 
turn of the last century? Or is thi 
competition from the girls so over- 
welming that the only way these ego- 
tistical males can attempt to show 
their superiority is by reverting to the 
ascent custom of endeavoring to 
elimiante female competition entirely'.' 

We are not attempting to degrade 
the physical power of the Massachu- 
setts State College men, but, after all, 
it takes no superman to beat a drum. 
Very indignantly yours, 

Fifty Furious Females

Editor, Collegian: 

A uoilar seems like a lot of moi ti . 
That is what our student comnutu. 
for the campus drive is asking of each 
student. The goal is $1500, faculty and 
students together. It can be done and 
1 can think of no other causes more 
worthwhile than those included in this 
drive. The system for collection is oin 
of the most convenient for the ijiver. 
In four monthly payments. So let's 
make it a quarter B month and past 
up a few of the "extras" to make this 
sintrle drive a success.

ride on the rattly rapid transit line 
brought us to the main gate of the 
Union Stock Yards Here the Massa 
chusetts State Judging team left us. 
After procuring our special paeaet 
and taking a short walk through the 
yard proper, we entered the interna- 
tional amphitheatre to watch the hone, 
state team through its paces and 
emerge in twenty-seventh place. 

The teams spent live tiring, silent 
hours, placing the twelve classes am. 
then marched off in silent colum is t 
the Stock Yard Inn for lunch and ora

time your roving reporters wended 
their way through "miles of aisles"

On Friday afternoon and evening. 
before the -how opened, we attended 

several meetings dealing with live- 
stock and livestock problems. It was 
at the evening meeting that we met 
Professor Tirrell from the Universit 
of New Hampshire for the first timt 
since we left our campus back in June

The big push for varsity posts on 

the Stockbridge quintet began Wei 

in-day. November 20, with twenty- 
four rangy veterans and prospect 
turning out for the initial practice. 
The boys spent the Week sharpenim 

their sight and cramming on funda 

mentals under the able tutelage of 

Coach -VuhV Pall. who. incidentally, 1 

starting his eighteenth season as ba^ 

ketball mentor. 

With only co-captains towering 
Caesar Kuzmiski and tiny Lefty Dol- 
eva as varsity holdovers, the team 
requires a major patching and polish

the glittering heights of last year's

believe that at present the need, the 
destruction and tragedy, the agony

in America today. And we believe 
that we have an obligation In the 
name of humanity t„ try to do at least 
Something tO alleviate the need where

specifically, this is to be an introduc-

of fouls called on the various mem-

Rosemark, performing one portion of 
his managerial duties. Another task 
connected with his position, that of 
attending to the financial affairs of 
the team should come easy to Ed, U 
he U a major in Economics. His 
quiet efficiency during hi* two years 
as assistant manager, and the cheer- 
ful willingness with which he has gone 
about his job, have earned for him 
the respect of those person- with 
whom he has been in contact. 

Another Economics major, Francis 
Shea will manage things for this 
year's swimming team. Fran will 
make his first appearance as head 
manager when the tank season opens 

with Worcester Tech on December 17. 

He will be on hand to announce all 
scores, times, and events, and this is 
one time when a manager has a 
chance to make almost as much noise 
as bis athlete.-. If any arguments 
should arise, Fran will most certainly 

be prepared to cope with them, as 
he has been a member of the debat- 
ing team for three years, and this 
yeni la president of the debating so- 

When it was decided last year to 

make the track managership into two 
separate positions, one for winter 
track, and one for spring track, the 
appointment of Ei ic Greenfield to 
take over the duties f ul - the winter 
season was a very natural selection. 
While he has had no previous man- 
agerial experience, Eric has had 
plenty of experience with running and 
runners, at he has been ■ membe] of 
both the (To- country and track 
• pads during the past three years. 
Thus he brings to hi- new position 
as manager a supply of information 
gained through personal experience 
which will enable him to execute his 
respomsihilitie.- with maximum ef-

Father Walsh Gives Outstanding 
Lecture Series Here Last Week 


The visit of the Rev. Gerald G. 
Walsh to Massachusetts State College 
last week provided one of the most 
outstanding series of lectures ever 
made available to students and facul- 
ty members on campus. Father 
Walsh, who is a distinguished scholar 
and authority on Dante, addressed 
Convocation on the subject of "Dante 
as a Humanist." Exhibiting Lhe traits 
of a combined scholar and orator, the 
speaker held the interest of the audi- 
ence by his own enthusiasm and the 
manner in which he presented the 
views of an authority concerning a 
topic far too broad for the average 

Father Walsh Illustrated his point 
by quoting several phrases in Italian 
and English, and his interpretations 
were models for all English students 

to follow. The ovation given at the 
conclusion of the Convocation speech 
was in itself a testimony of the 
quality of the speaker and also an 
unusual occurrence. 

Thursday evening, Father Walsh 
addressed the Language and Litera- 
ture from the early days of the Ro- 
mans and Greeks Up through the 
medieval period to the sixteenth and 
seventeenth centuries. By examples 
he explained the difference between 
the Irish interpretation and that of 
the continental writers. He further 
emphasised his topic by giving back 
ground material on the writers an 1 
the periods in which they wrote. 

Several ten o'clock classes were sus- 
pended Friday to allow the students 
and faculty to attend the third in the 
series of lectures by the Jesuit 
scholar. His topic was "Dante and 
the Philosophy of History". He stat- 
ed that history was composed of art, 

science, and philosophy, each predom- 
inating in one of the three periods, 
namely, ancient, medieval, and mod- 
em. Around this central theme he 
wove the pattern of Dante and his ac- 
complishments, his interests and writ* 

Father Walsh concluded his bril- 
liant lecture tour to the campus with 
a short talk Friday evening sponsored 
by the Newman Club. He gave a gen- 
eral presentation of the problems of 
religion and cleared up many issues 
confronting those interested in under- 
standing the spiritual truths.

Collegians Show Campus in 1917 

How Massachusets State College students reacted to the declaration of 
war in 1917 can be traced through stories printed in the CoUegians of thai 

On April li, 1917, just proceeding the declaration of war on Germany, 
the national crisis was discussed at an assembly. On Wednesday, April 1, a 
patriotic rally was held. 

In the April 10 issue Editor M. o. Lanphear commented on the transform- 
ation of the campus, the predominence of khaki, the changes in curricula to 
provide daily drill. He also said in an editorial that the "1 dont care spirit" 
seemed to be prevalent. He said. "There is no place for the men who "don't 
care" at such a critical time". 

In that same issue the fact was brought out that every man must think 
nut his own problem and decide where he may be of the greatest assistance. 
The alumni contributed their share for preparedness and one member stated: 
"Our entrance into the war is not as an ally of any nation or nations but to 
Kettle a quarrel between democracy ami autocracy." 

Other speakers at assembly here represented the public, faculty, and Btu« 
dents. The speaker for the populace stated that history has proven our vol

On Sunday Right we saw Memorial 
Hall for the first time. The tBOOB be- 
hind our quiet elms made broken 
shadows across the lawn, and the wind 
p«USed to rustle the ivy on the walls. 
And the moonlight rested on the 

graven inscription, nuking the words 
live, and speak: 'We will keep faith 
with you who lie asleep." 

In our minds we saw another build- 
ing, close to this one, and having a 
new roll of honor. 

We wondered if the memorial now 

breathing quietly in the moonlight had 

been dedicated to an ultimately futile 
struggle; if the faded ribbons within 
were tokens of waste and loss; if the 
whispers we heard were the tight of 
weak, child's voices, lost forever or. 
the wind.

Durng this time of war the national 
anthem. "The Star Spangled Banner," 
should be sung frequently. It is appro- 
priate for every gathering. It was noticeably absent at the 
.special convocation Tuesday. Despite the possibilities of better 
musical qualities in some other patriotic songs, none is the peer 

of the national anthem.

CONDUCT AT A blasting editorial on student conduct 

THE SOCIAL UNION at the Social Union program last Friday 

was planned. However the two letters on 
the subject, printed in the right hand column of this page, 
express adequately enough the shame and disgust that most 
students and faculty of Massachusetts State College felt M 
they sat through the most disgusting example of impoliteness 
and crudeness this campus has had the misfortune to witness 

in a long time. 

It is time that the small group which parades around here 
with their eyes closed and their mouths open awakened and 
saw the light. 


Contimud from Pag< I 

Batter system a failure and universal military training is the only solution 
of military policy. 

Today this last statement has been refuted by the decided increase in en- 
listments to the armed forces after the declaration of war following the sur- 
prise attack. Before the actual declaration, the situation was the same as in 
I'M 7. bat history has been overturned, as attested by the lines observed at all 
recruiting offices. 

The main difference between the present conflict and the 1SU7 crisis is 
the value of the radio During he war in '17 and MS. the piess had a mono- 
poly and great stories of propaganda caused confusion and panic among the 
general public. Now. the radio givei ;i complete and accurate coverage, at 
hast as much as can DC allowed. The radio is doing its part to prevent a re- 
petition of the war hysteria of twenty four years ago. 

The student of today is benefiting greatly by listening to the news and 

comments and these all'aiis are presented as to make the student think more 

Benny Goodman has been seeping 

his two rhythm men husy lately. Met 

Powell composer of "The i.ail." began 

his carrer with Benny on this num Dei 

demonstrating what kfarl "Father' 

Ilincs calls a trumpet-piano. Martv 
Blitz, Goodman'i basist held up botu 
cutis of the drumleSS experiment. 

One of B. G.'s most recent jobs for 
Columbia, featuring He) and Marty, 
is "Pound Ridge," an original. The 
number opens with a few ban by 
Powell. Then Benny solos, showing tin 
boys how he wants it done just play 
it simple, men) while piano, base ami 
drums feel their way along behind 
him. About two thirds of the way 
home Mel Powell takes the lead. Mel 
is just a kid but he is more than a 
potentially good pianist. He has ar- 

Pound Ridge's discmate is "1 Got 
It Bad," featuring Peggy Lee. Benny's 
vocalist since Helen Forrest's de- 
parture. Peggy's voice and style on 
this number are comparable to Nan 
Wynn's or to Dins Shore's. On other 
numbers, however — "Let's Do It" for 
one — she has an addetl kick that the 
others lack. 

Count Basic, Okeh artist, re leased 
a wax gem a few weeks ago. Playing 

as clear as that of the moon, the 

pageantry of the war so suddenly 
thundering down our quiet streets 

Xcw heroes would arise out of til. 
welter of clashing steel, new \nthon> 
Waynes, new Decaturs, new G rants, 
and new Pershings. A million new 
crosses might arise in sacrificial wdiit 
high on our BOW Mount Cavalry. 

And we may cry: In vain! In vain! 
They die, and there is no reason, no 

While, somewhere, men who know 
how to laugh and sing and regard 
their brothers with tolerance air' 
friendliness will become as impersonal 
as the very earth under their feet 
We will forget that the men we corn- 
hat were born of women; that those 
men are capable of suffering the same 
emotions we suffer. 

As we dreamed in from of Memorial 

Hall; ;ts we imagined a replica of it 

soon to catch the same moonlight, and 
thrust forth its graven inscription, UM 
thought of victory, and of early peace 
We are now lighting for our homes, as 
our enemies are fighting for theirs 
But strengthened with tin- belief that 
our battle is for just and worthy 
causes, the preservation of our Ameri- 
can way of life; we shall win. Memor- 
ial Hall will not have Loon an empty 
memorial, nor will the new memorial. 
Both will bespeak the tradition of the 
last war of this war, and of the next 
war: we place our faith in Cod. in 
his goodness and mercy. 

In fourteen days it will he Christ 
mas. We have faith that tile coming 
sacrifice will not he in vain, hecausi 
soon another Christmas will comt 
when WC can fully realize the meaning 
of its message: 'Clory he to God in 
the highest, and on Earth, peace an' 1 
goodwill toward men.'

Swimming Team In 
Stiff est Schedule 

Paced with one of the smallest 
swimming squads to represent State 
in some few years, coach Joe Rogers 
is not optimistic about the coming 
season which will open December 17 
in a home meet against Worcester 
Tech. A mere ten men, three seniors, 
four juniors and three sophomores, 
make up the SQjoad. To add to Coach 
Roger's dilemna, there is the possi- 
bility that the team may be further 
depleted by Uncle Sam. Joe Jodka, 
who last week won the National 
Breaststrokc Title, is due t » appear 
before the draft board sometime in 
.January to rind out whether or not he 
will do any more swimming for State. 

Win Avery and Kirby Hayes will 
swim the dashes with the possibility 
Of Bob Schiller getting off the spring- 
board long enough to help out in 
this department also. Joe .Jodka and 
Carl Ransow will, of course. >wim 
the breast-stroke while George Tilloy 
ami Ken Gorman are the official baek- 
Itrokers. This leaves a good share of 
the freestyle events in the hands of 
Bud Hall. Lou Care and Art Koulios. 

Coach Rogers was not overly en- 
thnsmstk about the condition of thf 
team but expressed the belief that

Interlraternity liimnni; 
Occaasionally during he mat tea 

years the subject of lit lamuial bowl- 
ing has come up. N'o successful pro 
gram has ever been worked out. 
Having noticed unusual enthusiasm 
this year for the sport I have tried to 
pick up some campus opinion on the 
subject. So, with due apologies to the 
Reader's Digest. — 

.Mr. Con says 

There is already too much activity 
in intramural sports, School work in 
general suffers during any particular 
sport season. There is now insuffi 
cient alley space to accommodate the 
faculty bowling tournament. Cost of 
such a league would be too expensive. 
And finally, there is not enough in 
terest to make such a tournamen sue 
< essflll. 

.Mr. Praj says — 

Bowling is undoubtedly an excellent 
athletic activity, lis introduction into 
tlu inlerfraternity sport schedule 
would help to extend the idea of play- 
ing for tun, not for blood. It would in 
addition bring in men who never think 
of participating in an organised acti- 
vity such as basketball. 

That the alleys could handle such a 

tournament was testified by the aile\ 

manager. "We would be glad to give 
the utmost cooperation", said Baxter

"Best meeting we ever bad", was 

Kid bora's comment on the annual 
meeting Of the Western Massachusetts 
V\ inter Sports Council which was bald 
at the Hicks I'hysical Kducation Build- 
ing last Sunday. The meeting was as 
usual c om bi n ed with the winter section 
<»1 the co llege recreation conference. 
The president's report given at tin- 
business meeting mentioned especially 
the progress in skiing facilities in 
Western Massachusetts during the last 
six yean. Besides the stressing of ski 
safety, a notable triumph for the coun- 
cil has been agitation which led to the 
establishment of a University Kxten 
sion course in skiing. Kollowing the 
business meeting, a i : "ely session on 
the development of ski aieas was pre- 
sented. Arthur MacDonahi gave a 
talk on the work done by the Spring 
field Ski Club in devc loping the Blan 
ford area. Then, to present the prob 
bin from a professional angle, Howard 
Sammis spoke of Farnum's in the 
Berkshirea of which be is ■ partner. 
Por the flirmer session the group ad 
Journed to the Lord Jeff. Speaker at 
the meal was Boger Langlay, pre i 

dent of the National Ski Association. 
Returning to the campus, members 
Of the group could choose between 
forums on ski safety or on the giving 
of proficiency tests in skiing. The 
program finished off with reels of film 
taken ; ,f Pranconia Notch and at 
Mount Cardigan In New Hampshire. 
Credit for planning the affair should 
go to Lawrence Brigi/s of the college 
staff who was unable to attend be 
cause of sickness.

Eleanor Cushman Chosen by Cadets as 
Honorary Colonel; To Lead Reviews 


"fl was the greatest thrill of my 

life", said Eleanor Cushman who was 
chosen at the annual Military Ball last 
Friday to reign as Honorary colonel 

A member of the class of '44, she is 
the first sophomore ever to receive the 
honor of being elected colonel. 

After having been chosen by the 
military majors, Eleanor, or "Cush" 
as she is familiarly known with her 
escort Hill Kimball, walked down the 
procession under an arch of cross 
sahors to receive her pin and regimen- 
al cloak from Colonel Young. Kleanor 
says her only recollection of the pro- 
cession is a blur of faces, for she had 
to run rather than walk in a bepeSBN 
attempt to match her escort's strides. 

A member of Sigma Beta Chi soror- 
ity, Eleanor has been active in sorority 
affairs since her pledging last Novem 
ber. Her favorite hobby is knitting, 
and she has been chosen to represent

Stockbridge's cage cavaliers sound-

in by co-captains Dig Caesar Kusmins- 
ki and diminutive Lefty Doleva — the 
two iluid-drive forwards that tallied 
the first twenty Stockbridge points 
and thirty-three of the team's fory 
one otal — Coach Ball's dazzling five 
surged to a 22-1) lead in the opening 
half. Dut at the end or the explosive 
third quarter this seemingly supreme 
Stockbridge quintet was teetering on 
the bunk of deateat as he visitors up 
wih a rush, rattled nine spectaculat 
snots through the hoop to draw to 
within one point of a tie. Then in the 
fourth quarter, Stockbridge marshal- 
led its iorces, tightened its laxed de- 
li uses and went on to wrap the game 
in cellophane by saurating the swish 
circle with ten more markers for a 
41-35 count.

Benny Goodman will go classical 
•gain on January 8 when lie solo.- 
witfa the Pittsburg Symphony. This 
will give us a little something to think 
about over the holidays. Hut what 
paiticularly concerns us at present is 
the fact that the Hen is leading polls 
for the best swing band and the Ins. 
clarinetist in "Downbeat" and "Met- 
ronome" respectively. 


Continued from Page 1 

After hearing the latest Goodman 
sextet platter — incidently, the first 
one for Okch Records — we are not 
surprised that Benny is still con- 
sidered the "King ot Swing." Both 
numbers on the disk are "oldies," but 
the sextet is brand new and what they 
do to "Lnnehouse Blues'' and "If 1 
Had You" is almost unbelievable. 

Mel Howell. Tommy Morganelli, 
Ralph Collier, and Sid Weiss make up 
the rhythm section. Benny, of course, 
is on the clarinet and "something new 
lias been added," — a trombone, played 
by Lou Garity. Lou is amazing on 
both numbers, especially on "If 1 
Had You." Here he chucks in a mute 
and actually challenges Jack Tea- 
garden to blow a better piece of the 
blues. Hut Mel Howell is the boy whom 
we cannot get out of our minds. On 
this particular number Mel gives us 
a perfect example of "feeling for the 
tune." For five or six bars he tracks 
his prey, then he finds it, tears it 
apart, and cools off in time for Sid 
\\ eiss' guitar solo.

The beginning of a new sport season 
MH»Dy brings a little lecture on spirit 
ami enthusiasm. Class, come to order! 
Last week the varsity basketball club 
played this year's opener. It was on 
a Friday night and the evening of the 
Military Ball. Consequently there was 
a roodly crowd, in fact, a full house. 
The public was getting its first look at 
a veteran club under a new coaching 
regbse And where was the enthus- 
iasm '.' That's the firs: point of the 
i.eture. The spirit was there! the 
soke was there! It was wonderful! 

"Well, what IS bothering you?" 
comes a timid query from the back 
row. Which is just the cue line I 
■ • ■'! for point number two. The col- 
lege — the students — support a band 
ltd a group of cheerleaders. Neither 
s,'roup were greatly in evidence at 
hiday'l game. Members of the band 
ust couldn't be bothered while the 
cheerleaders apparently forgot that 
there was a game. Do these groups 
Bet have some vague obligation to the 
student body?

All-New England squad, became the

disclosed President Raymond Walters

Picture a man with something on 
his mind; add a half-heard horn-note, 
ami you have our typical junior. 

While waiting in the recruiting 
office in Springfield the other day, we 
were approached by a creature clad 
in woodsman's clothes, high boots, 
checkered shirt,, and abstract expres- 
sion. He ambled into the office and 
stood on unruly legs. He appeared 
confused. For a moment he stared at 
a poster on the wall, wondering when 
the plane pictured thereon was going 
to take off. Then he focused his erratic 
gaze on us and asked: 'Where can 
I join the Boy Scouts?' 

We answered that we did not know, 
but it sounded like a capital idea. 
However, a— flint-eyed chief -petty 
officed spied our woodsinn, sniffed 
knowingly, and promptly hustled the 
confused patriot out of the room, with 
instructions to come back when, er 
sober. We think the man should have 
enlisted in the tank corps. 

If, while listening to the Sttgai 
Bowl gSBM between Fordham and 
Missouri, you heard a lone young man 
energetically singing 'Bay State's 
Loyal Sons Are We,' why, it was 
none other than our own John Beery, 
who spent his vacation among the 
sugar cane.

smoking habit, but whether he realizes 
it or not, he is now smoking a Utrgt

backward-spinning cue ball, is waiting 
around for the butt. (If his mooching 
technique is bad, I'm sure we could 
give him a tew pointer*, because we, 
too, have suffered). 

As for Hitler's mentality, we'd say. 
'He hasn't got all his (ioebbels.'

It is with no little pride that this college 
can survey the work it has done, is doing, 
and will do to further the victory effort of 
the United States. We can boast, justifiably, that our program 
is well underway. We note that while many colleges hastily for- 
mulated plans and publicized them when war was declared, our 
preparation had then long been instituted. This service in so 
many fields is exemplary of the continuous service of the college 
to the commonwealth and the nation. 

It is perhaps well to point out to those who have wished to carry 
on "business as usual" that these preparations are in no sense 
useless. The college and town authorities realize that the danger 
of attack upon Amherst is infinitesmal. Yet the risk is present. 
It can happen here and it is far better to prepare and never use the 
preparation than to wish that we had readied ourselves. Then 
too, the practice in air raid precautions will be invaluable to those 
who may in a large city during an air raid alarm. 

This vast amount of timely preparation and service is one more 
indication that Massachusettes State is a leader.

George Benoit 



The changes in the college program 
came to the student body not entirely 
as a surprise. Students knew that 
changes had been made elsewhere and that the needs of the 
country are urgent. Most people feel that those in authority must 
have ascertained the need of shortening this college year and in 
these times much must be accepted on the basis of authority. 

The greatest doubt about the change, on the part of the 
average student, is concerning examinations. Granting that the 
elimination of the final examination period of two weeks is an 
excellent way of finishing the college year early, it is nevertheless 
true that conditions for examinations will be far from optimum. 

The set-up as it stands will undoubtedly lead to a multitude of 
exams in a few days. The situation will be further complicated by 
the extent of the material some will ask to have covered for 
the examinations. The student body is most certainly desirous 
of maintaining its standard of work. The chance of a downward 
slide is tremendous. 

The situation calls for a great deal of reason on the part of 
both students and faculty. If the aim of the final exam is to 
rate the students and at the same time to cause him to co-ordinate 
the semester's work certainly some adjustment of the examin- 
ations must be made. Finals merely for the sake of having finals 
is ridiculous. Therefore, there is a great need of intelligent 
adaptation of these hour exams and an intelligent interpretation 
of the semester's work and the examination marks, as well as an 
earnest effort on the part of students to do their best. 

Associated Collegiate Press 

Seven rules for maintaining wartime civilian morale have been 
outlined by Dr. Irving J. Lee of Northwestern University, an 
expert on the psychology of anxiety. For a number of years 
Dr. Lee has applied the principles back of these rules to many 
cases of stage fright with amazing success. 

"The position of many Americans today," he points out, 
"is analogous to that experienced in stage fright. This situation, 
if permitted to continue, might lead to a deterioration of civilian 
Points to be remembered by all civilians during the crisis are: 

1. Center your attention on your task-at-hand and seek new 

ways of helping. 

2. Don't feel that the whole burden rests on you. Just do 

something, however small, and the net result will 
be great. 
8. Worrying about a situation dissipates your energy, leads 
to worry, and saps your efficiency for necessary work. 

4. Don't expect too much. Prepare for bad news. It isn't the 

pain, but the surprise coming of the pain that hurts. 
Remember that the anticipation of danger has a 
protective effect. 

5. Question all rumors. Don't let them affect you emotionally. 

6. Trust those in authority, they are the only ones in a 

position to know the facts. 

7. Don't worry near children. They are easily excitable and 

spread anxiety quickly. 

Just as an inexperienced public speaker allows his worry 
about the audience or his own failings to distract his thoughts 
from the talk he is to make, so many civilians dissipate their 
energies worrying about conditions they cannot control and lose 
their effectiveness for necessary duties. 

In a recent publication Harry 
James named his ten favorite trumpet 
players. Although our taste is not in 
complete accordance with his, we must 
admit that he has named some very 
good men. Columbia Records has 
done justice to many of them by re- 
cording their best. 

Henry "Red" Allen on "Body and 
Soul", Louis Armstrong on "Dear 
Old Southland", Muggsy Spanier on 
"Darktown Strutters Ball", "Cootie" 
Williams on Echoes of Harlem" are 
included in an album of hot jazz 
trumpets. Bobby Hackett recorded 
a splendid job of "Embraceable You" 
for Okeh Records. Roy Eldridtfe can 
be heard with Gene Krupa who also 
records for Okeh. 

One substitution that we would 
make in the James' line-up of trum- 
peters would be Harry himself for his 
choice of Charlie Spivak. For Harry's 
immaculate tone listen to "You Made 
Me Love You" and for a few James 
ideas hear "Record Session". An ad- 
dition to the lineup would be Hues 
Clayton. Buck is included in the above 
mentioned album on a number railed 
"Why Was I Born". This record also 
features a vocal by Billie Holiday and 
a very fine piano solo by Teddy Wilson.

Extension Service 
Geared for War 

Munson Announces New 
Program; Aligns Staff 
To War Needs 

The whole extension service is being 
mobilized toward greater victory ei 

it and this week Director Willan. 
Munson announced the rc-alignmcir 
of the whole state extension start' t 
more completely service farm and home 
i rganizations throughout the state. 

Sumner R. Parker of this extension 
. rvice is secretary of the state <ie 
feiise board and extension service rep 
rcsentative on the board. At present 
all correspondence between the state 
organizations and the office of defense 
relations of the United States Depart- 
ment of Agriculture is being handled 
by Mr. Parker. 

For the past year the extension 
service has been co-operating with the 
other U. S. D. A. agencies and farm 
organizations in preparing for this 
victory effort 

With the assistance of the A. A. A. 
a survey was completed of the gran 
tries in Massachusetts and at the 
present some grain is stored in thi - 
-tate due to their efforts. 

In the field of nutrition the exten 
poa service is acting as a clearing 
house for each town in food and seeing 
that all farmers are serviced and tha* 
there is no duplication. 

Under the direction of William R 
Cole a state-wide program in home 
gardens and food preservation is 
being carried on and m each count) 
leader training conferences will be 

Refresher courses in nutrition an 
being held in various counties of the 
state for home economics teachers, 
nurses, and doctors. 

This work is being carried on under 
the direction of Mrs. Annette T. 
Herr, state home demonstration leader. 

Put into action this week are the 
town rural war action committees 
whose immediate job is to see all 
farmers and get them to order farm 
supplies and machinery repair parts 
immediately. These committees will 
help the farmers throughout the war 
and go as far as post war-planning. 

4-H Clubs are doing their part by- 
buying defense stamps and bonds, 
U. S. 0. work and other types of help. 

A recapitulation shows the exten- 
sion service helping the victory effort 
in the following field: exhibits and 
movies, fairs, home management, con- 
sumer interests, bulletins, publicity, 
surplus marketing, radio, discussion 
groups, speakers' lists, nutrition for 
industry, rural policy, state nutrition, 
better living for the farm, clothing, 
family finances, and recreation and 
child development.

President Emphasizes Value and Continued 
Need Of College Athletic Programs In War 

On Xovi iber SB, 1041, President 

Hugh P. Taker delivered an address 
at tb. New Conference on Athletics 
held at the University Club in Boston, 
on "National Defence and tin- Con 
tinuing College Program of Physical 
Education and Athletics." 

Ill his speech. Dr. Taker recalled the 
unfitness of American youth during 
the lirst World War, because colleges 
abandoned their programs of physical 

education and inter-collegiate activity. 

He then went on to explain how 
State and other colleges had profited 
from this experience, and conse- 
quently, bad dev el o p ed courses de- 
signed to riot only develop the indi- 
vidual but also to round him out. He 
stressed the importance with which 
athletics are viewed here at State, 

... v ... 


Word has been received from Walter 
A. Konitr, S'41 Wildlife, to the effect 
that he is now making his residence 
with a Field Artillery company at 
Fort Bragg, North Carolina. He said 
in the letter that he may be trans- 
ferred to the Officers Training School 
at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, soon, to con- 
tinue his training. 

especially for freshmen, and brought 
up the question of the desirability of 
compulsory physical education for 
sophoeaoreSj juniors, and seniors. 

/'resident Taker cinhasized the 
mental aspect ,,f physical education as 
Well as the physical. He pointed out 
that playing on a team offers "a 
very d e fini te mental stimulant, a 
training which shapes altitudes, which 
contributes to sound thinking and. 
sane understanding" 

Another benefit of athletics, and 
not the bast important, as the Tresi- 
dent showed, was the fact that in 
these trying and anxious times sports 
Offer a healthy, natural release for 
any pent up emotion. In connection 
with Qua last idea he was careful to 
express the hope that no misguided 
effort would be made to curtail ath- 
letics under the jruise of patriotism.

Experiment Staff 
Works For Victory 

The Massachusetts State Coil :ge 
experiment station under Director 
Fred Sievers has in the past yea. 
intensified and oriented toward th. 
defense situation its previous emphasis 

on food problems. 

Always a leader in research, the 
experiment station is carrying o. 
extensive work on many problem 
whose solutions should help the na.i n. 

The departments of chemistry, 
dairy, entomology and poultry are 
engaged in projects designed to meet 
possible shortages in materials vital 
in the industries they represent. 

In the field of food technology under 
Or. Carl Fellers and his staff the 
college has expanded the study of 
the preservation of nutritive foods, 
utilization, of oy-produits, and has 
co-operated in tests of the new Type 
C or emergency ration developed by 
the U. S. Army. 

The experiment station reports on 
research activities on losses of vita- 
mins ami other vital factors are being 
sti • „-d by the Surgeon-General's office 
in planning its program. 

Dr. Helen S. Mitchell, research pro- 
fessor of home economics, is on leave 
of absence and is principal nutritionist 
of the Office of Defense, Health, and 
Welfare Services. 

The experiment station is co-operat- 
ing as always with the graduate 
school of the college and under the 
direction of the latter division is 
carrying on teaching and research 
problems related to defense. 

Fred Sievers directs the research pro- 
jects of the experimental station.

A Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity pin 

has been lost between Thatcher Hall 
and St. Regis Diner. Will the finder 
please return to Fred Dow, 104 That- 
cher or the lost and found department 
in the Memorial Hall. 

"After bearing all about Columbia 

ii : Minnesota i didn't know what to 

expect when 1 was to come to an 

American college" said Miss Kdith 

Weir, graduate fellow in nutrition at 

his c< liege and formerly a student at 

Guelp'.l Agricultural College and Tor- University. 

"Toronto University is run on the 

id system, that is, no attendance 

[| taken at (lasses, which vary in size 

.roil ten to three or four hundred 

tuttente, and all examinations are 

,iven at the end of the year." she ex- 

n.ined. In Canada a fifth year in 

righ school called "Crade 13" is a 

prerequisite for college entrance. 

"loronto University is an amalga- 
mation of denominational colleges," 
she said, " with one — the University 
college — remaining non-denomina- 
tional." Toronto is coeducational; the 
dorms are called "residences" and 
there is much more formality in man- 
nerisms and dress than is found on a 
campus college such as here. 

Ihe social life in the Canadian col- 
lege revolves around the individual 
residences of each denominational di- 
vision. "For instance when the class 
ol '42 at Trinity House (mejo!s) holds 
a dance they invite mob-like the wo- 
men in the class of '42 from St. Hil- 
da's!" she said. Incidentally Miss Weir 
never said "Hi** to anyone before com- 
ing here! 

"There is far more stress on girls' 
■ports in Canada than I've noticed 
here," she continued. "Before the war 
I tailed, we had women's intercolleg- 
iate games in basketball baseball, 
hockey, hadminton and tennis; we com- 
peted for cups and shields and other 
awards and traveled around like any 
men's team here. 

Since the war started many changes 
have taken place in Canadian life. 
"McDonald Instiute at Guleph Agri- 
cultural College where I studied Home 
Economics for two years has been 
taken over for a radio training school, 
'The British Commonwealth Radio 
Training School', and it's now fenced 
off, and has sentrys around it!" she 

"When war first broke out, there 
was the 'don't care attitude* on the 
part of the Canadian men students," 
she said. But it soon changed to a 
different spirit, and the men thought 



'while we're lure we might as well 
as much as we can; we may not e, 
chance later and we've got an opj t 
tunity that others don't have." 

"My home is near Toronto," 
Miss Weir," in Wingham, a si ,H 
town — all English-speaking peopl 
about the size of Amherst, but it 
better train connections!" 

"Port Elbert, where the R. A F 
training camp is located was aboui 
miles from where I worked last I 
mer," she said," and 1 came in contact 
with some of the 1300 English flieri 
stationed there. Their main ambition 
was to get to New York to see if it 
was like it was pictured in the mo

Statesmen Defeated By Springfield 
51-40 For Season's First Setback 

Play Of Both Quintets Is Ragged But Springfield 
Team Has Decided Edge In Running and Passing 

I he Statesmen received their first 
reveres last night in a 51-40 defeal 
!,v the Springfield College quintet 
Both teams seemed to be suffering 
from the vacation let-up, with the tw< 
attacks showing spots of very ragged 
play, and several shooting eyes tar 
\v form. Bokina led local scoring 
with fourteen points, while Frodyma 
collected ten and showed up well in 
Soor play. Merrick took individual 
honors for the Springfield club, r. 
tsring six floor throws and a foul Fh >t 
before being forced from the game on 
personal fouK Maleska. an it her Ala 
rooa forward, handled the ball smooth 
lv and accounted for ten points 

The State club started the evening's 
tearing with pretty shots hy Podolak 
ami Ffodyma. The locals held the 
lead for several minutes, then dropped 
behind and never quite caught up. 
Beore at the half was 18-31. Return- 
ing after the intermission, the States 
Men made their best attack to bring 
the count up to 28-33 before the visi- 
tors began any consistent hooping. 
Again, when the Hickox club had 
thirty-six points, they were halted un- 
til the locals came within five points. 
hut the Springfield team then drew 
ahead and stayed ahead until the final 
51-40 score. In trying to get a com- 
bination which would show some of 
the pre-vacation smoothness, Coach 
Hargesheimer used almost his entire 
roster. However, the starting com- 
bine of Kelley, Frodyma, Bokina. 
Pedolak and Malloy was the one which 
are the most service.

In addition to mass ealesthenics and

instead of the current chance to he 

just a tardy follower. 

But. V still stands for voluntar). 

This year the department of physical 
education has introduced a new sche- 
dule of physical activity. It is aimed 
at and designed for the men .»f the 
college who anticipate entrance- into 
military life. It exceeds last year's 
program in the attractiveness of its 
offers and in its convenience to the 
individual students. Advantages in- 
clude supervision, a large range of 
activity, ample equipment (including 
free hadminton birds), and even prior- 
ity right to the- badminton courts.

regularity needed in any plan of phy- 
sical activity. To advertise this gen- 
erous offer, the story was given the 
lead position in the- last issue- of the 
Collegian. Ami what is the result of 
this program? Latest figures give- 
the class enrollment to date as one 

will bear watching in the HO and 440 
yard free-style. The Connecticut 
swimmers appear to be about on a par 
with the Statesmen, and Yale will of 
course present one of the most potent 
scjuads ever to appear here at M.S.C. 
However, the State tank team is 
apparently rounding into very good 
condition, and presents some perform- 
ers who can hold their own in any- 
body's pool. The medley relay team 
of Jodka, Avery and Hall should he- 
one of the fastest in the country. 

Victory plans also touch college 
athletics in other ways. Many col- 
leges have already abandoned then 
freshman rules. Charles Caldwell, 
Williams football coach, speaking at 
an alumni banquet recently, stated 
that the Little Three, Williams, A-n 

beret and VtTeeleyan will probably 

suspend the rule barring freshman 
from varsity sports. Such rules are 
made to cause- wider participation in 
sports. Now, when every means an 
being used to increase this participa- 
tion, such action seems directly op 
posed to the general program.

they encourage sportsmanship and co- 
operation, but they establish good 
habits of recreation and teach girls 
how to use their bodies skillfully and 
well. Perhaps the most important 
reason for their importance, she said, 
is the fact that they help us to enjoy 
sports for the rest of our lives. As 
an example of the department en- 
couraging this, she explained why- 
hockey is played only in freshman 
year here. That is a sport which is 
generally not played after college days 

an- over, and therefore there wouldn't 
he too much sense in learning to play 
it well, when a girl could cultivate 
another sport, like tennis or golf, 
which she will he able to use- after 

As an athlete- herself, Miss Steven- 
son has the fine physique of an ex- 
cellent sportswoman. In college, she- 
was interested in cre-w, riding, hockey, 
gymnastics, and baseball. She was 
manager of basketball and canoeing. 
For her prownes.s in these sports, she 
received a Wellesley College blazer, 
which is the highest award in athletics 
given to a student. 

Usually so active in sports, Miss 
Stevenson does not often have the op- 
portunity to be a spectator, but when 
she does, she enjoys watching basket- 
ball, swimming, and ice hockey. She- 
thinks she would enjoy a professional 
baseball game very much, but never 
having Men one, she really couldn't 

At this point in the interview, 
freshmen girls in green shorts began 
to pour in and add to the general con- 
fusion; and since the last questions 
were answered from behind a curtain, 
with much flinging of arms and 
clothes, we decided it was about time 
to quit! 

While Springfield Collage was 
taking the measure of M.S.C.

Amherst, was busy losing its

Ihe whistle, ace tiding to Michael J.

The whistle is blown daily at noo.i

The decision to use the whistle wa 
reached, college authorities said, be- 
cause the Amherst fire whistle, which 
is to be used for aid raid warning, 
cannot be heard on the campus. 

Professor Gore pointed out in an-

to the air raid warning and does 
not anticipate any confusion locally

Retirement of Dr. E. B. Holland Brings to a Close Fifty 
Continuous Years In the Service of Chemical Research 

Senate Appoints 
Committee Heads 

Fifty years of service as a member 
of the research stair of the chemistry 
experiment station at Massachusetts 
State college ended Tuesday for Dr. 
Edward M. Holland with the coming 
of his seventieth birthday. 

Dr. Holland was appointed to the 
faculty of Massachusetts State college 
immediately following his graduation 
from State in \H ( .)2 and served in the 
chemistry reseaTh department ever 

Dr. Holland is a pioneer bl work on 
the composition of butterfat in milk. 
In 11(00 he was assigned to a project to 
determine the effect of feed on butter- 
fat composition in milk. In order to 
complete the assignment, Dr. Holland 
was forced to devise entirely new 
methods for the analysis of organic 
compounds. His work destroyed com- 
pletely, the common conception of 

quantitative composition of butterfat 
then held by chemists and resulted in 
Change* in organic analytical pio- 
After more than ten years 
Mtant work on a single Dfl 
Dr. Holland published the resttlta of 
his work in MM."). 
Dr. Holland is also well known for| 

Dr. E. K. Holland 

his work on insecticides, particularly 

on the chemistry of Paris 
g reen and other arsenates. 
In 1908 Dr. Holland began a sera 

of experiments on soy bean meal and 
soy bean oil. These substance* bad 
long been used as cattle feeds but 
nothing was known about their effect 

on the character and product of the 

dairy COW. 

In keeping with his interest in or- 
gank research, Dr. Holland in 1909 
also ran a series of experiments on 
the stability of butterfat, this also 
being pioneer work in the field of ran 
cidity and spoilage of butter. 

Upon his retirement Dr. Holland 
was engaged in work on the eff< 
of the rarer elements on the composi- 
tion of fruits and vegetables. 

Dr. Holland was born in Amherst 
on January I.'!, 1872 and was educated

FINIS The farewell edition of the senior staff of the Collegian 
is market! with mixed emotion: the relief of a weekly 
burden is filled with enthusiasm, but the regrets of severing con- 
nections with newspaper associates and newspaper work outweighs 
the lessened task. 

The present staff has lived through a changing era of the col- 
lege. During the period in which we have had a finger on the 
pulse of Massachusetts State we have seen cherished traditions 
and institutions swept from us. We have seen, too, great steps 
forward, both in the physical plant and in the educational process. 
As we leave the field of college journalism, the paper enters upon a 
period of unprecedented change. 

We seniors who leave the Collegian this week realize that we 
have made mistakes. But we know that they who never make 
mistakes do nothing. As a paper, we think we have helped the 

For those who succeed us there is work to be done. On this 
paper, as well as on all others In greater or lesser degree, the war 
will make its mark. We retire, though, with the satisfaction of 
believing our successors competent to carry on. 

State takes the tap-off misses 

a long shot. Amherst roars down the 

floor and leads 2 to Mike 

Frodyma is down He's up again, 

State trails 2 tc 1 Bokina hoops 

one, and State leads for the first and 
only time, for the rest of the game 

Amherst should have stayed in 

bed Mike's down again 

Evidently Amherst mixed up their 
schedules; this looks like their wrest- 
ling team Mike's up The 

officials are also mixed up; they 

think it's a hockey game Our 

boys could have brought hockey sticks

anything Mike's down again 

Mike's up Someone slugs 

him; he's down again Hargie's

he fell off the bench Santin 

caresses the referee Mike's up 

Amherst freezes the ball to 

protect State's fifteen point lead 

Captain Tisdall freezes while Coach 

Jordan burns State leads by 

fifteen points at the half,, and fifteen 
points at the end of the game; thirty 
points in all Mike's down. 

We thought the name of Pulton nn;i> 
known only to our campus. However, 
last week the local theatre was featur- 
ing a movie entitled: "H. M. Pulsen, 
Esq." iledy LaMarr was co-starred 
with H. M. P. Mrs. Pulsen will be 
pretty sore about that Mike's up. 

After hearing President Baker 
speak at Convocation last Thursday, 







by Alice Maguire 

we are considering turning the column 
over to him. He has more wit than all 
three of us. Mike's down. 

In answer to numerous queries as 
to how the column is written, we will 
outline our methods for precipitating 
a more or less sane existance into 
type at thirteen ems. ('Ems' is a print- 
er's measure, found in cross-word puz- 
zles. No connection between it and 
the M Building, although the 'Colleg- 
ian' is edited there). One of our most 
frequent methods of writing the (Jal- 
lery is to wake up screaming, and 
run for a typewriter. To date we have 
ruptured many blood vessels while 
screaming, lost a total of twelve 
pounds running — before and after 
publishing, and have acquired a bun- 
ion on our typing finger. We live in 
constant dread of syndication by the 

At other times we meet in the dark 
of the moon, when all the dark world 
is singing insinuations and voodoo 
chants. 'Pot boil and cauldron bubble; 
Hicks and Fitz: triple trouble.' Sorry, 
Will. Looking out the window, I can 
see the weather vane on the Drill Hall. 
Did you ever notice that the letters 
on the vane are 'M. A. C? That is

STUDENT The opinion of 1200 men and women in a commun- 
OPINION ity should be of some value in deciding matters con- 

cerning them. This is not just a pious platitude. 
Nor is it offered as a criticism of any particular action. 

However, there has been increasing evidence that the student 
body has been quite generally neglected in the past few years in 
many changes made in the college: Often, the students have been 
consulted after the deed has been done. 

No student takes the attitude that this college should be ad- 
ministered through student action. Nor do rational students be- 
lieve that, since they pay tuition, they are privileged to dictate to 
the college authorities. 

But the students do most emphatically believe that their opin- 
ion is worth something. Faculty and administration almost in- 
evitably fail to see many phases of a question that are important 
to students. 

The student body has elected representatives. In addition 
the student newspaper is an avenue of approach to any situation. 

Much dissent and misunderstanding could be avoided by 
giving due regard to the opinion of the majority.

ar Sirs: 

We feel very strongly , hat V(|U 
avast give us a chance! First you 
iave "cancelled" all finals s„ that the 

. mester ends the 24th of Jani.a.y. 
vnd then you extended the class per- 
il one week. Then you left \\ up to 

e instructors as to whether or not 

ey should give hour exams .luring 
fiM last several weeks this was to 

:e the place of "cancelled" finals. 

These instructors could give us as 
many hour exams as they liked two 

three, any Dumber. Or, of 
they don't have to give any. 

Our oniy peri. ..I of thorough review 
Of the whole semester's study ii 

ring the week an.! half ordinarilj 

.i. voted to finals, and you have taken 
this away. You have taken away our 
period of study and review and what 
have you given us in its place? \ 
week of regular classes, an.! each 
elass laden witli its daily boor exam. 
These hOttT exams are counting ai 
finals. They cover the entire semes- 
ter's WOrfc. Each one requires hours 
of reviewing. How much time, for 
example, is an ordinary student going 

to he able t<> spend preparing t 

hour exams Monday, .'J hour exams 
Tuesday, ,'} hour exams Wednesday, 
an. I so on through the week. He pr<>- 
hahly works somewhere to earn money 
for his expenses; he probably eats 
an.! sleeps. If he studied as long as he 
should every day and night in prepar 
ation for the next day's hour exams, 
he could have no time for anything 
dee and still not be properly prepan .1 
You are requiring twice u much work 
fr./m us as formerly, and giving us 
"iily half as much time for study. 
We absolutely cannot do justice to our 
«ork this way. 

Take a long look at the averages of 
your good students in the college. 
There will surely be a drop in their 
averages. You'll be Scratching a- 
ntffld to find Phi Kappa Phi scholars 
becaQM even good students' averages 
will fall amazingly by this unfair 
Method of testing. Then look at th. 
number of students who will tlunk 
out. You may say, "They aren't good 
students, anyhow", but since the col- 
lege requires a 60 average to pass a 
course, it should give a poorer student 
a chance to make even that. If you 
ar.- conducting a purge, you are using 
a fine, thorough method. 

This purge method is especially bar.! 
on freshmen. Freshmen should be 
given more of a break than the rest of 
us. A goodly number of them ar. 
saving hour exams each math period 
all this week and next week and each 
English period all this week and next. 
AH this in addition to all the other 
hour exams their other Instructors 

This is a period of intense defense

Dr. Marie S. Gutowska Carries On 
Active Research in Nutrition Here 

By Edna McNsmsrn 

"Make it short:" were the words 
of Dr. Marie S. Gutowska, assistant 

profeuor in nutrition in the Home 
Economics Department of Maaaaehua- 
cits State College, as I left hat 
office after an Informal interview. Hut 

as I sat down to condense the facts, 
1 had a hard Job for our college added 
a distinguished person to its staff 
when it found an opening fof this 

remarkable woman. 

Dr. (iutowska was horn in Peters 
burg, Russia. Her parents were Polish. 
They owned a land-estate near Kiev 

(Ukraine, Russia), where her father, 
as a graduate engineer, helped develop 

the Russian oil fields. 

Her life is crowded to capacity with 
a long list of reniarkahle achieve- 
ments, heartbreaks, and successes. 
Two wars have done their best to 
wreck her faith and yet she has 
withstood the test 

Graduating from the University of 
Kiev in 1912 with a scientific degree, 
she entered physiological research 
under Pavlov. In 1910 she married the 
Polish lawyer, .laroslaw Skarsynski. 

Her homelife was abruptly interfered 

with however by the fust World War. 
when her hushand was killed as a 
PUaudaU sympathizer just a few days 
I. efore their second son was horn. Mrs. 
(Jutowska relates, "I might have been 
killed also, hut the peasants on uor 
land dressed me as one of them and 
took care of me and my two sons." 

In describing further of her ex- 
periences, she says, "Finally in Octo- 
ber of that year 1919, it Decamc pos- 
sible for Poles in that area to escape 
to the new Poland which had been set 
up." I made the tri,/ with my two 
sons and other refugees in a box car. 
which had been used for ha u l ing 
animals. We had iron beds to sit and 
sleep on, and no water or lights." 

"Ordinarily the trip from Kiev to 
Warsaw took 12 hours; this time it 
took a month. The trackshed bad 
been partly destroyed in the fighting, 
and had to be rebuilt as we went 
along. There was no regular crew 
of railroad men to operate the train 
and no coal. The men chopped down 
trees for fuel for the locomotive." 

Back in Poland she managed to 
build up the pieces of a once comfort- 

ahle and secure life. With her hus- 
band dead, her home, money, and 
estate gone, her thoughts turned to 
her work — work for the country that 
had been the dream of her fattier and 
grandfathers. For twenty years she 
and her family succeeded well. OlU 
in-other became Governor of Warsaw. 
She herself rose rapidly from her first 
position on returning to Warsaw, of 
lenior assistant of physiology at the 

University of Warsaw, to become one 

if tile 10 women professors on the 
faculty of the University of Poland in 
tin- field of agriculture. She has re- 
ceived countless awards, published 
about twenty scientific papers, and 
many articles in magazines and news- 
papers; and has been decorated twice 
by the Polish government. 

In li»27 she married Holcslaw Gu- 
towska, a doctor of medicine and pro- 
fessor in the University of Warsaw. 
One of her sons died in li>.'5<>. Since 
October 1989, she has not heard from 
her husband or remaining son, left be- 
hind in Poland. 

She came to America as a delegate 
to the Seventh World's Poultry Con- 
gress at Cleveland, Ohio, July-August 
l'.Wi), at the invitation of the United 
States Committee for this Congress. 
Mer short stay was prolonged by the 
war, and in November 1 !»">!», she start- 
ed research work in the Poultry De- 
partment at Massachusetts State Col- 
lege. In July 1941, she was appointed 
assistant professor in nutrition in the 
Home Economics Department.

N Y A Allotment 
To Be Eliminated 

Opportunity To Take Civilian Pilot 
Training Course Offered 

Dr. Allen E. Andersen, instructor 
for the Civil Aeronautics Author-ty at 
the Massachusetts State College, an- 
nounced early this week that the regu- 
lar C. A. A. courses for sophomores, 
juniors, and seniors will begin next 

There is, however, one new aspect to

and Harry James. Both are undoubted 
ly superlative in their respective con- 
ceptions of what popular music should 
contain. Take, for example, the new 
lament "You Don't Know What Love 
Is." Both have recorded the number, 
Goodman for Okeh and James for 
Columbia. In making the comparison. 
we would omit the two male vocals 
since, with the exception of a few 
superficial differences in technique 
most male vocalists are the same. 
But taken as a whole the records show 
striking differences between the two 
bands. The song itself requires an ar- 
rangement emphasising background. 
Notice how Harry handles this re- 
quirement with violins and Benny 
with brass and re-nls. Notice the un- 
dulating rhythm in the James record- 
ing and the slight jump in Goodman's. 
Take your choice. 

Civil Service Exams for 
Students Announced 

Applications for Civil Service Ex- 
aminations for juniors and seniors are 
now available at the local postoffice 
for Junior Professional Assistant and 
for Student Aid. This series of ex- 
ams are given annually, and many 
students have availed themselves of 
this opportunity in reent years. 

The Junior Professional Assistant 
Bxam requires four years of college 
education and has a salary of $2000 
per year. This test is given m 18 op- 
tional subjects. The Student Aid 
position pays $1410 pand is given in 
4 optional subjects. 

Applications for these examinations 
must be on file in Washington not 
later than February 3. If forms are 
not available at the local postoffice. 
blanks may be obtained by writing the 
U. S Civil Service Commission, Boston, 
or the main office in Washington. 

The Placement Bureau received an 
advance communication from Wash- 
ington stating that all appropriations 
for NYA work program probably will 
be eliminated. This notice is the re- 
sult of a bill proposed to turn NYA 
funds over to defense appropriations. 
By this move, all student aid not under 

department funds or ■pedal allotments 

will be curtailed. 

This loss would total approximately 
190,000 on this campus. The local 
assessment this year was decreased 
twenty percent from last year's total. 
This latest cut would drastically re- 
duce the working fund available, 
leaving only state and private funds 
which are very small for student aid. 

Since a large majority of the stu- 
dents would be affected, it is urged 
that each student who Is a recipient 
of aid from this fund and the parents 
of all of these recipients send indivi- 
dual letters and appeals to their Re- 
presentatives and Senators in Wash- 
ington. This action would show that 
the students and parents recognize 
the assistance NYA has afforded, and 
that the movement for continuation of 
these funds is strongly supported, not 
only on this ess&pOS, but on every 
college campus. 

This bill is now in tbe preliminary 
stage, and if it is to be protested, 
prompt action should be taken. The 
loss of a fund of $20,000 for this col- 
lege means the loss of employment for 
many students and the subsequent in- 
ability of many to continue their

Mrs. C. J. Haase, a 1936 graduate 
of Stuot institute, Menomonie, Wis., is 
keeping records of activities of all 
members of her class. 

The department of tropical medicine 
at Tulane university school of medi- 
cine is becoming one of the most im- 
portant in the world since mose Euro- 
pean schools are closed because of the

head of the department of entomology 
at Cornell. 


Dean William L. Machmer announ- 
ced that the schedule for the summer 
school is gradually being worked out. 
He also said that the opening date of 
the summer session has not been de- 
termined as yet. Conferences are 
being held this week to plan a definite 
organization of classes best suited to 
the student's needs. 

The summer school, which will be 
12 weeks in duration, will not quite be 
equivalent to a normal semesters 

1330.83 Feet Of 
Potential Sophs 

The freshmen, according to figures 
released by the Division of Physical 
Education, carry a lot of weight on 
campus. If the two hundred and 
thirty-one freshmen men who were 
weighed in September were piled to- 
gether — admittedly quite a job — 
their total weight would amount to 
over seventeen tons. It would be 
rather hard on the bottom men, but 
such a pile could be formed. 

The average freshman weight 149.9 
pounds, but there is a difference of 148 
pounds between the lightweight and 
heavyweight classes, for the heaviest 
man weights 252 pounds while the 
lightest man tis the scales at a mere 

Besides carrying a lot of weight the 
freshmen are also pretty well up in 
the world. There are, to be exact. 
1. '530.83 feet of potential sophomores, 
or enough to make a pile over a quar- 
ter of a mile high. The typical fresh- 
man is 5 feet inches tall, with a class 
high and low of 6 feet 4 inches and 5 
feet 3 inches respectively. 

A pyramid of husky men that 
weighs over seventeen tons and towers 
into the air for a quarter of a mile is 
a potential weapon and should be 
treated as such. There's no telling 
what such a group of freshman might 
do. If the interest in the proposed 
first aid courses becomes acute, any- 
thing might happen. The boys might 
form their pyramid and topple over on 
a group of unsuspecting sophomores, 
using the excuse that they wanted to 
provide some real victims for the first 
aid groups. Its a good thing to stick 
together in this emergency, but the 
freshmen shouldn't take the idea too 

work. A student will be able to earn 
12 credits at the summer school while 
the usual semester's work usually con- 
sists of at least 15 credits. The sum- 
mer classes will consist of two semes- 
ters, each six weeks in duration. 

this coining course, in that all who t 
roll must either enlist in the Army « 
Navy Air Corps or else go into civil i . 
aviation permanently, after the c 
elusion of the course and graduati ,. 
Dr. Andersen explained that the be 
tits of this preliminary training w 
threefold; first that students In C. V. 
A. are not subject to draft; sec 
that proper credit is given by 1 
branches of the service for the amo t 
of instruction covered, and third, that 
previous experience at the controls of 
a plane better qualify a person to meet 
bis flight training when entering 
air corps. 

Since the inauguration of C. A. A. 
on this campus in 1038, all students 
taking the cyurse have been required 
to sign a pledge promising to enter the 
air force if and when the necessity for 
college men was urgent. In this con- 
nection, Dr. Andersen wishes to point 
out that this stage of urgency has now 
arrived and past enrollees are being 
asked to redeem their pledge. 

Dr. Andersen can be reached at the 
Mathematics Building any day be- 
tween 11:00 A. M. and noon, and also 
at 7:00 P. M. on Tuesdays and Thurs- 
days. Students anticipating entering 
next semester's primary C. A. A. 
course should contact Dr. Anderson 
either this week or next. 

Prof. Andersen announced that all 
candidates for CAA and anyone in- 
terested in the requirements for this 
pilot course are asked to attend a 
meeting to be held Tuesday, January 
20 at 7 o'clock in the Math Building. 
This meeting is vitally important be- 
cause i.ew regulations concerning 
CAA have been enforced and all pros- 
pective members should know the full 
details and should receive them

State Mermen Edge Out Eph Splashers In Close 
Meet; 1st in Relay Gives Locals 41-34 Victory 


Last Saturday was a really success 
ful day for State BSOrtonSSn, with the 
esritin g victory over the Sal.rmas in 
the SVSCdng and an equally BXCiting 

srin by the swimming team over 
Williams. This meet, bald at the 
LnSSll Pool in Williamstown,, was an 
M-mcly pleasant surprise, for the 
Purple team was generally conceded 

to lie one of the toughest competitors 
on the Rogers schedule, ex* . eded only 
by Vale. 

The serious prospects which State 

fj»sd going into this meet are shown

the meet, and from then on it was 
nip and tuck until the last event. 
When the 400-yard relay cam., up, tl„. 
score was tied at .!4 all, and the States- 
men came through to win by quite a 
margin. The final tally was 41-St, a 
score for the Kogersmon to he proud 
of. Three college records were broken: 
the 220 freestyle by Hall. Hud also 
smashed the 1(10 yard freestyle mark, 
and the 100 yard relay record was 
knocked down by State's team of Jod- 
ka, Gam, Avery, and Hall. 

^ Throughout the entire meet, the 
State team showed excellent spirit and 
teamwork, bringing home the bacon, 
with a score that makes us polish up 
the old hopes for next Friday's clash

hopes depend not only on the fine 
spirit of the team itself, hut on tfas

Quintet Takes Thriller 

Inn a drama-drenched free-for-all, 
for which words weren't made to 
match, a fight-fevered Stockbridge 
quintet brought down the house Satur- 
day night at Dudley by shading a 
rowdy Nichols Junior College five 86 

to ;:5. 

Again paced by the almost fictional 
feats of the "tally twins", co-captains 
Kuzmiski and Doleva, who heaped in 
all but one of the team's 150 totals, the 
basketball brigade did the spectacular 
when only the best would do. They 
rocketed to the fore, 4 to 1, in the first 
quarter on two lay up shots by big 
Caesar, but then fell behind as the 
pendulum swung in Nichol's favor, 
with the home team crowding nine 
digits through the rim to take the 
biggest lead of the whole encounter, 
10 to 4. Hut that was short lived, for 
a mid-court toss by the Amherst 
pepper pot, "Lefty" Doleva, shortened 
the gap to 10 - 0. 

Depending solely upon the scoring 
prowness of their co-leaders and the 
great rebound retriving of Bak, Bren- 
nan, and Tonet, the team pulled to a 
18 - 17 near-deadlock at the half and 
knotted the count 25 all at the end of 
the third quarter. Then in the fourth 
quarter the Blue and White finally 
Went ahead and stayed, but not with- 
out making a desperate ten-minute 
stand against the rough and reckless 
opponents, who grayed the heads of 
the frenzied spectators with amazing 
shots which matched Stockbridge bas- 
ket for basket right down to the wire. 


The informal committee will 
give a free ticket to the winter 
carnival ball to the couple that 
is in the right place at the 
right time at the informal in

from 8:00 to 11:30. 

According to Chairman

Some of the most unusual, most 
impulsive acts have been carried out 
in the past tWO Weeks. What was the 
cause of these unpai ailed deeds? The 
great instigator was the unusual 
examination period that ended the 
first semester at Massachusetts State 
CoUCge. Who were the people who 
committed the historical events? The 
guilty ones were freshman females 
living at Butterfield House. What 
were these acts? Xow the real fact - 
will be disclosed to the whole campus. 

It is known, without a doubt that 

a certain asessber of the class of '46

studied in her slacks, supped in bat 
slacks, and even slept in her slacks 
for a trio of twenty-four hour periods 
— without a single break. Imagine the 
condition of the occupant and owner 
of the defected, overused gray flannels, 
if she could not take time out for 
almost one half of a week to don a 

solitary skirt.
